WSM43246 8134 Cranium Pipe Smoking Facet 3D Model
An unidentified male middle aged adult with a pipe facet in the maxillary anterior dentition. This indvidual was excavated from Upton-on-Severn, in Worcestershire, as part of a rescue excavation during construction on part of a disused burial ground dating from 1836 to 1866.
Pipe facets are worn into the teeth from habitually gripping on to clay pipes, usually short stemmed ones known as ‘cuttys’ or ‘nose-warmers’. During the late 19th century, smoking clay pipes declined following the introduction of cigarettes, cigars and more robust briar pipes. By 1914, the clay pipe industry virtually extinct.
