Several years ago, somehow, I left a box of 10 pipes in my shed and they became forgotten. Mice got into them. A Castello had a spider nest in the bowl. A Ferndown had what looked like a mouse nibble in the wood. I took the whole lot to Michael La Due at Jon's Pipe Shop to be fixed up and resanitized. Here they are today - back in my rotation. The Ferndown mouse nibble was touched up and is not detectable now. These pipes are among the earliest I collected.
Here are thumbs of my "mouse pipes", and then links below to larger photos.
The bottom-most links will take you to more pipe photos and my Home Page. Enjoy!
I believe the German Tobacconists by this name once branded their own pipes, sourced from various European makers. This pipe is stamped Made in England.
The Pot has a replacement stem. The Author shape is an Iwan Ries branded pipe (IRC Selection)
The '97 Christmas had a dull finish when new. I like it better this way - waxed.
