Half of a unique fired ceramic tobacco pipe mold is described and illustrated from the S. Warner Hamilton Farm, Franklin Township, Coshocton Co., Ohio. Although the mold is marked with the initials J.M. and kiln debris was located in the fields south of the Hamilton home and west of the barn, no documentary evidence has been located for a stoneware pottery at this site or for anyone with these initials being associated with the farm's history. The pipe is of plain design with two raised rings around the bowl rim and three closely spaced rings at the end of the short stem, similar to some examples from the Point Plesant, Clermont Co., Ohio, factory (Murphy 1976).
