Research Remarks

Published Description N/A

This reproduction of a crested pipe bowl was made by Reginald Laubin while he attended the Norwich Art School in CT. It was formed with a low-fired, fine particle, earthen ware clay body, painted (not glazed) with both a red and brown paint and then waxed. The paint was applied with a wide, stiff bristle brush and the resulting brush marks are still visible in the dried paint. The crest of the pipe bowl has seven (7) angular notches along the top ridge and two rectangular carved holes in the flange.
