    Inlayed Xhosa Pipe ex Trevor Barton Collection. This pipe is carved extremely thin and may well date to the 19th century. Our view is that its decoration might represent marriage beadwork once worn on the owners head. Two sets of inlay appearing like 'three fingers' are found on either side of the upper pipe bowl - connecting to a solid band.
