Rare & Unusual Old Karen Hill Tribe Deer Bone & Antler Smoking Pipe
100% Hand Made
I bet you never seen a pipe like this before... I know I haven't. But now is your chance to own what is probably the most rare and unsual pipe you will ever come across. This is an authentic Karen Hill Tribe handmade deer bone and horn smoking pipe. The Karen Hill Tribe people normally make and smoke bamboo pipes, but this rare beauty belonged to a tribal chief who pass it down to his successors. I was very fortunate to find and procure this unique masterpiece. I know the price is a bit steep, but this one cost me a pretty penny. This is not a reproduction, it is an authentic Karen pipe that has been used. I got it during a trip to a Karen village (Note the photo of me with a couple of Karen Hill Tribe women). I have included a brief history of the Karen People below.
Size: Can be seen in photos.
Materials: Deer bone an deer antler

BRIEF HISTORY OF THE KAREN PEOPLE
For centuries much of the population of northern Thailand has been composed of ethnic groups commonly known as 'hilltribes'. The largest of these is the Karen group numbering around 400,000 in Thailand.
The two main Karen groups in Thailand are the Sgaw and Pwo Karen. The Karen Hilltribes Trust works with the largest, the Sgaw Karen, who live in the Khun Yuam and Mae La Noi districts of the Mae Hong Son Province.
Their history in northern Thailand can be traced back to the twelfth century. It is thought that Karen originally came from Tibet, through China, and eventually to Thailand.
In Thailand they mostly live in the more remote mountainous areas due west of Chiang Mai. They are subsistence farmers who live at peace with nature and the forests. The Karen settled in what is termed the 'middle level' in the mountains, namely between 800 and 1,800 meters.
They were semi-nomadic people using swidden (slash and burn) farming methods, moving around on a seven year cycle. However, around 1968 the Government insisted that they must stop moving around. They were offered Thai ID and land rights if they could prove longevity. Now they are settled but their lifestyle is still influenced by their culture
