This clay pipe was found along Salt Creek south of Ada, Kansas, and donated to the Kansas Historical Society in 1975. The pipe style, Pamplin, was named after those made originally at the Pamplin Pipe Factory in Pamplin, Virginia (1879-1952). They are also sometimes called reed stem pipes. Manufactured from clay, they are a common find at archeological sites. The bowl and stem are decorated in a ribbed design.

Date: 1879-1952
