In the form of a frog
Inscribed in black ink ‘Greene Co. Ohio’
100 BC – 200 AD
Size: 8 cm wide – 3 ins wide
The pipes were made of hard flint clay probably using copper tools and almost invariably the head of the animal faces the smoker. These pipes are undoubtedly the finest naturalistic carvings of pre-historic America, but their exact meaning and use remains unclear.
