Catalogue Description: Carved wood flat pipe stem of the "trick" type. Geometrically-shaped cutouts were made in the center of the stem and the un-initiated had to guess how the smoke traveled through it. Decorated with red and blue-green paint, it shows slash marks made with a hot metal file for added decoration.
