Description POST-MEDIEVAL PIPE TAMPER. Muscular male. In his right hand he holds a club which rests across the back of his shoulders. His left arm is behind his back and holds a round object (apple?). The face is worn but the eyes and mouth are depicted. The nose is flat and wedge-shaped. Could the drapery be an animal skin with paws at the front?
