HG Smoking Pipe Heel and Bowl Rim

(1668 - 1688)

One small bellied white ball clay smoking pipe bowl with a rouletted rim and a stamped circular heel. The heel is stamped with a crown above the letters "HG". This pipe was likely manufactured by Hendrik Gerdes, a 17th-century Dutch pipe maker. The pipe is very white and appears to have not been smoked. The clay appears dull and unpolished. The rouletted rim has small rectangles rather than dot rouletting.
