Late 18th century to early 19th century clay pipe, found at Petersburg, VA


Product Description

This is another nice piece being offered, it is a late 18th to early 19th Century Clay Pipe, it is the bowl and a piece of the stem. It was recovered many years ago in Petersburg, Virginia. Petersburg, once a highly successful town, originating in the mid-18th century, saw action towards the end of the Revolutionary War, as well as enduring a nearly 10-month siege, during the Civil War.

The city of Petersburg, which sits on the Appomattox River’s fall zone, was a bustling port and business hub in the 18th and 19th centuries, engaging in a considerable amount of commerce and trade. I discuss tobacco use by Civil War soldiers in my book “The Civil War Soldier – His Personal Items” (see pictures). This pipe is in very nice condition.
