Effigy smoking pipe carved in the form of a frog, made of a dark, highly polished pipe stone. Some loss is evident at the mouth-piece of the platform and a section of the effigy's rear. The legs are carved in relief against the body and the mouth and eyes are indicated with solid incisions. The overall form has a quite angular appearance.
