Product Description

A very rare and large, early 19th century, British Nailsea Glass Smoking Pipe.

Nailsea Glass is very collectable, but what sets this apart from other examples is the sheer size. Given this, the pipe is made up of 3 distinct parts that have been joined together. Being made of glass, the pipe is very delicate and it is amazing that it has survived intact up to now. The glass is decorated in a way similar to Venetian glass, but was produced in Nailsea, near Bristol, in England. The glass is a striped mixture of pink and white, creating wavy patterns.

The bowl is too large to fit anything but a fortune in tobacco, so it was probably made as an advertising piece for display.

Size: 85 cm (33 1/2 inches)
Weight: 921 g
