The shape and overall design of this siltstone pipe suggest it was manufactured during the Late Prehistoric period. It is typical, for example of Early Fort Ancient forms commonly found throughout the central Ohio Valley. The design on this pipe bears a strong similarity to a massive elk antler rack. An unusual drilling from the bottom of the pipe connects to the stem hole. This pipe was once in the collection of Berwell B. Thomas.
