Pipe bowl

Pipe bowl

A carved stone pipe bowl with a crosshatch design. This style of pipe came from the eastern part of Canada and moved westwards with the fur trade. Pipes like these were often carried by voyageurs. Northerners who frequented southern posts would have traded for these pipes. This pipe bowl was found at one of John Franklin’s campsites from his 1819-1822 expedition.
