Amber Ulm Pipe

You are looking at a rare utensil of smoke, 

a very fascinating objet d'art, 

an Ulmer pipe crafted wholly from a solid block of rich orange amber, 

and accompanied by a turned orange-yellow amber stem, 

assembled from several discrete pieces. 

This pipe belonged, at a time, in the Erik Stokkebye Pipe Collection assembled in Odense, Denmark and brought to the United States in the 1980s by his son, Peter Stokkebye. The collection was eventually sold.

This is the wind cover with thumb lift of the amber Ulmer containing a glass insert in which is embedded a silver bust of someone of importance.
