The Missouri Meerschaum Old Dominion Jamestowne Clay Pipe is a mid-17th century colonial-era pipe replica. Like the original pipe it was copied from, the Jamestowne features a decorative line of milling around the rim of the bowl as well as a defined “heel” at the base of the bowl.
The Old Dominion Williamsburg Clay Pipe is a faithful reproduction of an early 18th century English clay pipe. It is a less decorative pipe than the Jamestowne, but slightly longer, with a slightly larger bowl capacity. Dimensions for both pipes can be found on the individual product pages on the site.
In order to keep the pipes historically accurate, the pipe stems are not glazed for either of these clay models. They have been designed using 3D modeling of scanned fragments from 2 kinds of colonial-era pipes found on the Old Dominion Farm. They are fashioned from non-toxic, commercially produced clay, and bisque fired, as were the originals. These pipes are excellent "testers" for smoking new blends, and remarkably accurate historical pieces to add to your collection!
Back in Cob Land, the Volcano from Missouri Meerschaum makes its debut, featuring a natural red, Volcano-shaped cob bowl with a hardwood plug accented with a filtered danish amber bit. You can imagine this bowl as basically an inverted version of the popular Rob Roy shape found in the Legend series, but left unfinished for even more heat dispersion during your smoke.
These three new pipes are available now here at The Pipe Nook. Enjoy!
Keep 'em lit,
