Catalogue Description: Pipe stem carved in the shape of an animal. The snout looks too long on this for it to be a dog. Possibly a wolf, coyote or fox. Two brass tacks serve as eyes and the neck and lips are fire-decorated. There was originally some bone hair trim; a bird scalp and blue feathers still remain near the center. The stem is painted red and blue-green. The original Jarvis (the collector) inscription reads "Indian pipe Uppo Miss."
