This is a Spotted Catlinite Mic-Mac style ceremonial pipe.
The pipe bowl is app 3″ long and it stands app 2″ tall. This pipe is crafted much like many of the old style pipes were. It has a square shank where the stem goes in and the bowl is flared where the tobacco goes. This particular pipe is fashioned after one that can be found in Lar Hothem’s book: Catlinite Pipes. It has 3 holes in the keel mirror indentations in the base. The rounded parts of the bottom of the pipe have multiple tally marks. The bowl and stem is connected with a leather thong and some brass beads for decoration. The original pipe that this was fashioned after was from Winnebago County, WI.
When the bowl is connected to the redwood stem, the total length will be app 10″ long. This pipe will make a very nice personal or ceremonial pipe for someone.
Catlinite or Red Pipestone is a material that holds up to heat very well. It is an ideal material to use for pipes.
This pipe comes with a 9″ Cedar Stem.
