139 Masonic Pipe (VCU_3D_139)
This a clay tobacco smoking pipe made in England but recovered archaeologically at George Washington’s Ferry Farm. The pipe has a molded Masonic emblem. This pipe may have belonged to George Washington himself, and the Masonic emblem was positioned to be seen by the smoker and no others. A video produced for Instagram by Archaeology in the Community in the Virtual Curation Laboratory features Olivia McCarty discussing the object, using a printed version made with a MakerBot Replicator.
