The English Tavern Pipe is based on the style used in England in the 18th century when smoking tobacco was a popular pastime.
The tavern pipe would often be available for free at Inns and local Public Houses where patrons would enjoy a smoke with their tankard of ale.
Sherlock Holmes sat silent for a few minutes with his finger tips still pressed together, his legs strtched out in front of him and his gaze directed upwards to the ceiling. Then he took down from the rack the old and oily clay pipe , which was to him as a counsellor, and, having it, he leaned back in his chair , with the thick blue cloud-wreaths spinning up from him, and a look of infinite languor in his face.
