Coal Miner

 Pipe.

 

Excellent carved wood Bruyere pipe 

beautifully carved in the form of a Coal Miner's head.

(please see pics.)

 

A superb, very sculptural mining subject,

with an excellent strong expression to the pit man's face,

very well carved & an unusual, scarce example.

(please see pics.)


Marked to the side

BRUYERE 

FINE

so a top quality pipe.

(please see pics. & detail # 9)


 

Total length ~ 5.5 inches long

(Total length ~ 13.5cm long)


 

VINTAGE, USED & A/F CONDITION

Totally original & fresh to the market.

Uncleaned, unpolished & as we found it.

Old, used & pre-owned,

with some signs of age & use, as you would expect.

(please see pics.)

This pipe has been smoked & used 

with the customary blackening of the interior of the bowl

 through years of use, but still perfectly functional.

It would smoke for many years to come & is a scarce example.

(please see pics. # 10 & 11)

Some rubbing & minor surface marks to the carving in parts,

with a small 2mm lighter patch behind his ear & to his mid nose,

small, minor & mentioned for accuracy only.

(please see pics.)

*  Two visible small & minor thin fragments missing to the peak of his helmet,

where chipped in the past, but small, minor & all part of it's history, 

& we sell all items exactly as we find them.

 (please see pics.)

Minor marks & rubbing to the stem & mouthpiece,

but complete, fully functional & again very minor.

(please see pics.)

*  There is a fine hairline crack to the underside of the wood,

where it meets the stem, running in from the join for around 8mm.

This is relatively minor, very fine & worthy of drawing to your attention.

(please see pic. # 12)

Otherwise it is still good throughout,

is an excellent mining example

&

 it displays excellently.

(please see pics.provided,that show the item condition.)

 

An excellent hand carved miner's pipe,

that would grace any collection.

(* Please take into consideration & view the minor faults to the brim, bowl & underside, before bidding.)
