Silver & Ivory Tiffany Pipe

Heide purchased this silver and ivory gem in 1914 in Reading, Pennsylvania. Made by Tiffany of New York in 1890, it was a gift from the Lord Chief Justice of England, Richard Everard Webster, to Jacob M. Gordin, a Russian-Jewish playwright living in America. This elegant 8" pipe became part of the Martin Friedman Collection in 1978.
