Little is known about this pipe donated to the Kansas Historic Society in 1925. Early during the 20th century, clay pipes began to lose their appeal in favor of wooden pipes, so this pipe may date from that period. The wooden bowl and partial stem were carved into a skull or skeletal face. Traces of its being smoked remain inside the bowl.
