Wonderfully decorated pipe with several insignia from various units and organizations.
The pipe is marked, Imported Briar, and was neatly embellished with the unit insignia of the 3rd Infantry Division, and the 5th U.S. Army in Italy. Also are the insignias of the Signal Corps and Free Masons. Unfortunately, no soldier’s name is associated with the pipe, yet is a super example of soldier art.
The 3rd Division insignia is craved and hand painted, and the 5th Army being carved only. The small masons insignia my be either gold or gold filled.
Fine condition and a great visual WW2 item from the Italian Theater.
