That is a super cool rack with the nomencalture on the inside doors, what a great find. How cool that it is possibly from an actual pub.

I almost bought one of those a few weeks back. There were actually a number of them made, with that same pub name, so I don't believe they came from that actual pub. It is an awesome piece though, and I am sure you will enjoy it!

I ran across one of these cabinets at a local thrift store and picked it up thinking it looked a lot like a dart board I used to have. Wasn't too expensive so I didn't even look in it. When I got it home I opened it up to find it stuffed full of all kinds of pipes. A lot were unused and there were some unusual (to me, as I am not a smoker). I don't know if it was bought that way or someone put their collection in it. Most likely from an estate sale. One large OOM- PAUL says wellington imported briar.
Just sharing while I was trying to find out a little about it

My wife bought me one off of eBay. From what I have researched. They are from The Sherlock Holmes Restaurant and Pub in Charring Cross. They sold them in the gift shop in the '70s & early '80s. They are great pipe racks!

so awesome to see this i actually just acquired one of these cabinets the other day off of ebay. only mine doesnt have the glossary and diagrams on the inner doors, i actually sent an email to The Sherlock Holmes asking if they are still in production and if i could purchase the inserts from them. However they informed me that they havent been in production for a very long time so no luck. Either way though it looks like a great cabinet inserts or not i cant wait to get mine in the mail.

I had that same pipe cabinet that I purchased back in the late 70's or early 80's. It was sold by the local J.C. Penny and also available through their catalog. I sold it when my wife had a custom-made pipe cabinet crafted for me.
I often wish I still had the Holmes cabinet.

[quote="Jack Howard"]This pipe rack caught my eye on eBay. I bought it thinking it was kind of kitschy, a real conversation piece, and I needed something beside a plastic tub in which to store my pipes.[quote]
A wonderful find indeed.
