Presidential Pipe Head of President Franklin Pierce
Before cigarettes, tobacco was either chewed or smoked in pipe bowls like this.
Franklin Pierce was an extremely popular American. His likeness on anything was a sure way to sell your product and souvenirs like this were a relatively new fashion.
DISCOVERED - These pipes had been ordered by an American customer and while being produced by a factory in Uslar, Germany, the factory caught fire and burnt to the ground trapping this very pipe of a forgotten U.S President inside. During construction in the early 2000's, crews uncovered evidence of the fire and this order that was never filled.
It is now your responsibility to ensure the witness of history continues to have a future in the 21ST Century!
History is now in your hands, take care of it.
