An unusual carved wooden pipe in the form of the head of Philippe VIII. Philippe VIII was the Orleanist claimant to the French throne from the late 19th through early 20th century until his passing in 1926. The pipe appears to be briar wood and the carving is of a good standard as can be seen. The pipe is named using gold blocked text, there are no makers marks. The pipe appears not to have been burnt. Date wise it is unlikely to be much after the death of Philippe, so would be early 20th century. Mouth piece will unscrew.
Appears to be unburnt. Minor wear and a few scratches and scuffs.
