A heavy 200-year-old pipe from Burma is made of clay mixed with a generous amount of sand. Such sturdy unglazed pipes and other utilitarian items were produced for centuries in Burma’s provincial pottery villages using primitive techniques developed during the Pagan Period. This pipe is very similar to those excavated in earlier times, illustrated in “Burmese Crafts Past and Present” by Sylvia Fraser-Lu, Oxford University Press, 1994, p. 205. It has two small chips on the edges of the bowl; otherwise is very good condition. Dimensions: height 2” (5 cm), length 4 ½” (11 cm), diameter of bowl 2” (5 cm).
