Clay Pipes

Pipes from late Victorian dumps in Essex, originally discarded in London. Top left: twisted stem, and an angler’s pipe, on which a pike lurking in the reeds swallows the stem. Then three pipes of the Royal Antediluvian Order of Buffaloes (RAOB). Below, variations on a thorn design, including two football pipes. The pipe bottom right has been through a destructor. The stem is complete.
