Oh my goodness! This vintage wood carved pipe is so stunning! I have no idea if it still works I did however blow out of the mouthpiece and air came out of the top. It has cool tribal carvings with a man sitting on top smoking out of a pipe. There are some imperfections: The mouthpiece kind of looks like it has been worn from use or even chewed on a bit, scratches all over the body of the pipe, and on the bottom there are areas where it looks like is some flakes of adhesive or maybe from the wood finish.
