Animation of the Day: Pamplin Pipe Bowl in Shape of Bearded Man

by Bernard K. Means, Director of the Virtual Curation Laboratory


Today’s animation is a pipe bowl in the shape of a bearded man.  The pipe bowl was manufactured at the Pamplin Pipe Factory, a site located in Appomattox County, Virginia, and is in the archaeological collections maintained by the Virginia Department of Historic Resources.  It is listed as an R. E. Lee pipe, but more closely resembles Stonewall Jackson. A printed version was made with a MakerBot Replicator.

    I have a large display of Pamplin pipes from the factory that the factory hand framed with arrow heads…if anyone was interested.
    I was going to take it to a consignment shop, however, I feel bad about that if it has historical significance & someone’s more interested.
    I’d attach a photo if I had the option.
