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.

eBay Find: Pipe Rack 100_1211

It arrived today, and my wife wondered if it might be from an actual pub. So I hit Google and found a pub at Charing Cross called The Sherlock Holmes, using the same script as is on this case. So, yeah, it seems possible this piece started out at a London pub at some point in the past (the date on the painting on the doors is dated 1978, Granby Inc), somehow made it to Canada, and wound up in my hands.

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
Thanks
Bo

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. Very Happy I often wish I still had the Holmes cabinet.

Just bought one from eBay just before Christmas complete with contents for $32. Only problem was I had to arrange to get it collected, which if all goes well should be today!

I believe I mentioned that I had purchased one of these before Christmas for £21. It finally arrived about two weeks ago but as January is when I have to get all my taxes done I have only just managed to have a really good look.

I was not prepared for the treasure trove I got.

I should apologise for all the mess in the background - been unpacking for ages.

The most surprising find was a beautifully carved briar. I believe it to be French as I think it represents Marianne - The Spirit of the Revolution. I cannot track down the markings or find anything about it so any help would be much appreciated.

The strange thing about Marianne is that although she has been handled extensively - thumb polish on left cheek - she hasn't been smoked! Perhaps some French politician just used it for gesticulating a lot!
