This yellow glazed ceramic pipe was donated to the Kansas Historical Society in 1984. Anthropomorphic (resembling a human form) pipes such as this one began to be popular in the 18th century, though this pipe likely dates to a later time. It depicts an unknown male face wearing a crown. He may not have been royalty, because at the time other important people, George Washington for example, were also depicted with a crown.

Date: Unknown
