Pipe boxes were commonly seen and used in Colonial American taverns and inns around the 1700-1800's to hold long pipes commonly made of clay. This simple, handsome pipe box stands 15" tall and features a round, pierced finial on backboard with drop-down shoulders. It offers a pull-out drawer with a simple round metal knob. There is a dowel rod inside the compartment to catch the back lip of the drawer when pulled outward. The original wood cover on the drawer is affixed and since acquired, has not been attempted to be removed, due to effecting the quality of the piece.
