I cant help but think about the history of pipes that old. Who enjoyed them, and under what conditions, the surroundings. Hell, jsut the story.

Great meer, man, seriously

I THINK I'M IN LOVE!!!

That is such a gorgeous pipe! It's in great shape for being almost 100 years-old! I bet smoking that pipe makes you feel cosmically in touch with pipe smoking brethren from the past... Cheers!

It smoked great after a few bowls. I recall the first couple of smokes having a distinct mildewy flavor. Not surprising considering that this pipe had been sitting unused for 30 years before I acquired it.

Don't recall if you said it came with a case??? Any nomenclature on the pipe??? Definitely a great collectible with much history behind it. I have seen some old BBB pipes and other antique briars with similar metal work on them. Thanks for sharing the photo, and hope it provides you with a great smoke.

After observing your avatar I see it is listed as an RBC. Very interesting. Guess I answered my own question, next time I'll be a little more observant.
