This piece is about 28" long assembled. The pipe bowl is china with a metal top that snaps up and down. The china portion is attached to the wooden stem by khaki colored strings. The bowl reads:
1st sgT. M328/Inf. USA
v upominku z CSR
and lovely handpainted roses below it and the American flag in blue and white stripes with red stars on one side and the Czech flag on the other side.
I asked my Mom if she recalled this piece and she didn't but when I mentioned Dad's unit she rattled off his info like it was yesterday. She will be 100 in November .
