I recieved for Christmas this year a nice haul of estate pipes to restore, a few of them gems. Two of them I cannot for the life of me identify. Any help, or even just a push in the right direction, would be GREATLY appreciated! Here are some pics.

Hitsuzen, you can post your pics on a hosting site such as Photobucket, and then cut and paste the code into your post. On Photobucket, the code is the IMG code in the bottom box, or 4th down from the top.

No markings on the stem, although it is a P-lip.

Hmmm, worked the first time, but not the second. Let me play with this a little. Thanks Dutch.

"TOWER" engraved on shank, stem too chewed and scratched to discern any previous markings. This one is beat up, and will be a BLAST to bring back to life.

There is a Tower tobacco in Sacramento Cali, but how long it's been there I couldn't say. Might be one of their store pipes from back in the day.

This was going to be my guess on both these pipes. Local tobacconists sometimes contract major manufacturers to make their own "house pipes," with their own unique nomenclature.

In the late '50s early '60s Sears had a premium brand of products made for them called "Tower" after the Sears Tower headquarters. They ranged from cameras to typewriters and I remember seeing pipes with this brand on them at the tobacco counters they had in the stores. This could be one ? Twisted Evil Twisted Evil

I have somewhere a Dr Grabow with and aluminium shank and a threaded tendon bought in the 60's that looks like that. Maybe made for the Tower shop in Sacramento.
