Just recieved from Mom a boxed set of Lonchamp estate pipes that were my Dads. He's gone now to a better place so can't ask him about them. Appear to be a medium billiard, (unsmoked), a small billiard, a medium or small bulldog, and a little kind of squashed bulldog, maybe a bullcap? All leather wrapped. Pipes sit in felt lined depresions, top inner lid silk lined w/LONGCHAMP, FRANCE, and goodsized logo above it. Can't tell if covering on box is faux or dried out leather. All 4 pipes have a 'metal thingie' that screws into the tenon. On two of them it extends into the bowl about 1/8 inch. They look like a drill bit, kind of like the airway cleaner that screws out of the base of a SENIOR PIPE-REAMER. We were in France in the late 50's, and may have been purchased there. If I'm not mistaken, LONGCHAMP's were available in PXs allso, and we were all over the world. I could take a shot of them with our digtial camara, but don.t know how to load into comp. or send. My daughter can do this e-mail. Any info appreciated.
