1890's Uncle Sam Patriotic / Presidential Campaign Figural Bowl Clay Pipe For Sale
Rare and quite wonderful, ca1890's Figural Clay Pipe in the form of Uncle Sam. This fantastic White Clay "Face Pipe" measures approx. 5 3/4" long overall and approx. 2 1/4" tall at the bowl end. The bowl of the pipe is cast in the classic form of the head of Uncle Sam with long hair, goatee style beard and stovepipe hat which is encircled by red and blue painted stripes.
This wonderful, patriotic motif Clay Pipe is cast as a complete Pipe (not just a pipe bowl) and along with the red and blue stripes on Uncle Sam's Hat, there is also enamel paint decoration on his eyebrows and pupils.
This rare and wonderful Uncle Sam / Patriotic Motif Clay Pipe is in very good condition. The bust of Uncle Sam is sharply cast and very attractive. The enamel paint decoration is well preserved - bright and bold. There are a few tiny flea-bites on the edge of the brim of Sam's hat and a single, tiny nick on the inner surface of the top edge of the pipe bowl but otherwise there are no chips, cracks, damage or repairs. The Pipe is unused and the clay ground is generally quite white but there is some light surface soiling as can be seen in the scans below.
A rare and wonderful, ca1890's Figural Clay "Face Pipe" in the form of Uncle Sam and a fantastic addition to any Tobacciana or Political Americana collection!!

Important Notes about Shipping Charges:
The amount quoted for Shipping & Handling is calculated by and is equal to the EXACT amount charged by the Post Office plus a $1.00 "packing fee" - the $1.00 fee is our only compensation for the virgin packing materials we use on all of our professionally packaged boxes as well as our cost for the salaried help that does most of our packing - as I am sure you can see, we make NO profit on the Shipping charges and, in fact, our costs are usually greater than the $1.00 fee. Please contact us if there are any issues regarding the cost of shipping.
