Description

Green ware pipe measuring 2" long, 1.625" tall, and 1" wide. The pipe is made of white clay glazed with copper oxide lead glaze on the exterior. A significant section of the pipe bowl is broken..

The pipe features a fluted body with a human face on the bottom front of the bowl. This style pipe was manufactured in the Bethabara Pottery between 1756-1771. Gottfried Aust's pipes were made with a pipe press and brass molds. Seven different style pipes were recovered from Aust's waster dumps. Four smooth-surfaced, one fluted with a fleur-de-lis design, and two anthropomorphic styles.

This pipe was recovered from the feature identified as B51 Aust’s Waster Dump #2. This indicates this pipe was made between 1756 and 1760. It is labeled B41-1-2-7.
