looks like the kind of pipe in use in bavaria in the olden days. however the pipe stem (is that the word, the log pipe connecting mouth and pipe head) seems to be missing. Being able to close the pipe was popular so you wouldn't have to smoke all the tobacco in one go...

This looks like it's just the bowl of the pipe, here's some pix of whole ones: http://www.dawnmist.demon.co.uk/xgermanwooden.jpg

I did find this quote through a google search: "Bavarian
pipes with metal lids are made from glazed stoneware"
