Ok, so it turns out the "ream" wasn't quite as terrible as I'd said -- the walls are still decently thick. That said, the walls are likely thicker than what's left of the bottom of the bowl. The whole pipe was also shellaced or varnished rather poorly, with lots of tiny beads all over. Somebody I may tackle this and see if there are any good smokes left in it. For now, it sits in a box.
