Smoking Pipe Stem and Heel

(1650 - 1664)

One partial smoking pipe stem with round heel marked "EB" in beaded cartouche. The bore hole diameter of this pipe is 8/64. EB pipes were manufactured in Amsterdam by an Englishman from Surrey named Edward Bird (Burt). Documents list Bird as a pipe maker in 1630. After his demise in 1655, Bird's son Evert, continued manufacturing pipes, probably using the EB mark. Pipes with the EB mark in a beaded circle were produced from c. 1650-1664.
