Columbia River Tube Pipe/w carry strap hole
Nice example exhibiting some carving and designs on the bowl and stem. No restoration. Worn and slightly damaged/cracked bowl.
Drilled hole in stem likely made for strap for suspension on cordage.
These pipes were often a very important and sacred or status item and quite rare to find.
All information and history on this example will be included on SOP.
