Only 4 and a half inches long with a very small bowl, this unique pipe was in vogue in England in the late 16th and early 17th centuries. Due to the scarcity of tobacco, smokers would use only a pinch or two at a time, hence the bowl did not need to be any larger than this one.
This is also called the Elizabethan clay pipe. In the Spring it can become the Elfin pipe, too. So watch out.
