The stem and saddle are fashioned from one piece of bamboo. The saddle is the root that was growing at the end. It is sheathed in a brass cuff. There is a leather collar at the end of the stem. The stem shows great patina. The mouthpiece is jade. The octagon shaped stoneware damper has stamps at 6 sides. One smell of the damper or puff on the pipe tells it was well used.
