Catalogue Description:
Hollowed out tubular pipe. Often used in the sweat house, pipes were used for locally grown tobacco. This type of pipe is hand-carved out of hardwood, usually madrone, manzanita or oak, worked with sandstone, and polished with fibers of horsetail rush to create a very fine finish.
