This art-deco inspired Weber belongs to forum member "Dutch". I've not yet held one of these, so this was a treat. I did a write-up on the Reborn Pipes blog:

Thanks guys.  I added a couple of catalog page to the article, including this one which describes the "bone" filter.  That explains why I couldn't "clean" it!

I'm sure my now long gone Uncle had one of these when I was a kid. I sometimes wonder what happened to his impressive pipe collection.

Very cool pipe and really great job Al!

I think I've got a non-briar version of that shape. I'll have to see if I can dig it up.

Edit: I found it. It's made of something probably similar to the MM Hardwood pipes, but it's a Streamliner. It's been smoked and the stem is a bit oxidized, but it's in good shape. Anyone want it?

Nice job on the resto btw!

Those catalog pages were from the early 40's.
$1 then is equal to about $14 now, adjusted for inflation.

Steve Laug encouraged me to trim the tenon a bit (and Dutch OK'd the work). The stem fitment is a now a bit more snug, but I don't think it ever fit very precisely. She's ready to mail back to Dutch!

Cool pipe, it reminds me of an Aristocob I picked up awhile back.
