Just curious which "period" you are looking for?    I do 1740-1790 myself so that covers my period just fine.  I think you may find culture and area have mroe impact then time.

1810-1860 pipes like these "victorian character pipes" may fit  http://www.pipetobacco.com/page/pipet/CTGY/clay

Or the Irish wake pipe  http://www.irishshop.com/claypipes.html

Both of these being slurry versus true clay pipes  are appropriate to the 19th century being more poured then pressed into the molds.

Here is a good history site.   http://www.ramshornstudio.com/pipe_smoking.htm
