Columbia River Indian Steatite Pipe
An unusual Native American steatite pipe made as a copy of an 18th Century European or American clay pipe with a bowl bent away from the horizontal complete with a spur on the bottom. The pipe was collected by a family who were early settlers near Cowlitz Landing in Washington. The bowl of the pipe is very thin walled. The stem terminates in a raised lip with a design of vertical grooves closely carved along the edge. The pipe has damage with half of the lip missing and breaks along the top of the bowl.
