    A few more photos from different angles as well as size, makers marks etc might prove helpful.

    Looks like a Bacchus caricature with the leaves and grapes.

    Turkish meerschaum, I should think, for starters. And Roaring has it with Bacchus, or Silenos, one of his companions.

    I can see mold lines, and they are thin-walled, so I think clay.
    It would be nice to see more photos though.

    There’s a pipe mudlark site if I can find it. Those look like eighteenth century clay ones.

    Agree. The photo makes them appear like planters.

    These are cadger clay pipes, Victorian in age, when someone would ask another to fill their pipe they would have a small one on show and when the tobacco came out they would pull these large pipes from their pocket. These are St Nicholas, Christmas pipes but they come in a few designs, I have a few cadger pipes, here is a link that tells you all about them.
