Fountain of the Red Pipe


Thames beachcombing. Hazards and clay pipes. Stairways to a gruesome past. I’ve read elsewhere on the Net that people should always beachcomb the Thames in twos. I never did, but it is sound advice. You wouldn’t think that idling away on a beach, 20 feet below the rest of the world would be hazardous. However, you’re never entirely cut off from the world and its supply of bored year olds. I was on Deptford Beach one Spring Sunday morning, bent over so that I could better scan the shoreline and spot any potential treasures peeking from the mud. My hand was reaching out to turn a pebble when a PC monitor smashed onto my trowel and the screen exploded in pieces around me. The force sprung the trowel from my hand and I jumped back instinctively just in case anything else was coming my way.

Following the successful village hall display in May when we presented our findings to village tenants and also pupils from the local primary school. Following approval from the Grosvenor Estate for a number of test pits and resistivity surveys we carried out excavations in July, August and October. We have now completed our fieldwork in Eccleston, and the focus is on post excavation analysis and writing up our findings.

Janet Axworthy is preparing a report on all the Pottery that was washed, sorted and marked by the members last year. We have an interesting range of 13 th to 15 th Century medieval items, then a gap before the 17 th to 20 th Century Items. This analysis will be helpful in determining date ranges for the various contexts in which other items were found.

In the late sixteenth century, a new class of artifact began to appear within the European archaeological record. This was a specially designed receptacle for smoking tobacco which consisted of a bowl in which the tobacco burned and a perforated tube through which the smoke was inhaled. To begin with, in England, clay pipes were made in iron-free, white-firing clays, made in one piece, in two-part molds and fired in specially designed kilns.

This technology quickly spread through western Europe and to European overseas colonies, including those in North America from whence, arguably, the idea — though not the technology — had originally come. By the early seventeenth century, a parallel development occurred within the Ottoman Empire where the earliest pipes — the chibouk — were mold-made in red-firing clays but consisted solely of bowls to which were added smoking stems made of wood or reed.

The large V-shaped pipe is reported to be from the Menominee tribe in Wisconsin. This article describes and illustrates several examples of catlinite pipes that were made in the north central United States, in Iowa, Wisconsin, Missouri and Illinois. The later examples were made during the historic period. This article also illustrates and describes some of the history of catlinite pipes and the catlinite quarry site near Pipestone, Minnesota.

Catlinite pipes of every imaginable design have been discovered on sites across the United States, mainly east of the Rocky Mountains. The study of catlinite pipes is a complex one because so many different Native American Indian tribes, both recent and ancient, have been making them for so long. Plus the fact that large numbers of them were also made by Europeans, during he fur trading years.

This bird effigy platform pipe represents one of the earliest examples of catlinite pipes. This pipe was discovered during levy construction in Madison County, Illinois sometime in the mid ‘s. Red catlinite has been a favorite pipe making material for hundreds of years. Other names used to describe it are, pipestone, claystone, red claystone and pipeclay.

A tobacco pipe, often called simply a pipe, is a device specifically made to smoke tobacco. and oily clay pipe in several stories, notably in “The Red-Headed League”. Broken fragments of clay pipe can be useful as dating evidence for.

The guide even includes an illustrated list of the different kinds of mud , which in its seriousness may be amusing to some! Most locations have either patches or whole banks of shingle, some interspersed with areas of sand, others with areas of mud. For most visitors the fragments of clay tobacco pipe are the most memorable novelties, and a trademark of the Thames foreshore.

Pieces of pipe-stem are easy to pick up in certain areas, complete bowls less so.. There are so many fragments, not just because for more than years they were sold filled and routinely chucked when smoked, but also because the hundreds of pipe-makers working along the foreshore would likely ditch their kiln leftovers or rejects into the Thames. The top pipe bowl above dates from while the one below is a fairly typical decorated one from Oysters have been native to the Thames Estuary since the beginnings of time apparently, and it was only relatively recently that they ceased to be a major food source especially for the poor.

As peculiar as some of the pieces themselves, the language of ceramics is vast and draws from a global dictionary. Peruse our A-Z to find out about some of the terms you might discover in our incredible galleries. Ceramic objects are often identified by their marks. Marks like the Chelsea anchor or the crossed-swords of Meissen are well known and were often pirated , while the significance of others is uncertain.

One such mysterious mark is the capital A found on a rare group of 18th-century British porcelains. Once considered Italian, the group has been tentatively associated with small factories or experimental works at Birmingham, Kentish Town in London, and Gorgie near Edinburgh. The most recent theory is that they were made with clay imported from Virginia by two of the partners in the Bow porcelain factory. If so, the ‘A’ might refer to George Arnold, a sleeping partner in the firm.

This is because the first ‘baking’ implied in its original usage would have been to fuse raw materials, not for firing the shaped ware. Unless made from materials that vitrify at high kiln temperatures, biscuit ceramics are porous. To make them impervious to liquids, they require a glaze and a second ‘glost’ firing.
