Identifying estate pipes. For example I bought at an antique store today Golden Royal Custom Made Handmade billiard that has potential, but i really don't know what I have, the grain is straight up and down and I only paid $3.50 for it. I also bought a system pipe with p-lip that I just cannot make out the make just made in Italy. And third an LL Bean pot with wonderful birds eye all around. I have plenty more in my collection that google has nothing on. Anybody know one I should try to find? I have all about pipes book, but none that help with collecting. Or anyone know anything about these?
Good LORD, Dock has more books on pipes & tobacco than our local library has books period! :lol:
All you need now is a bound copy of J.M. Barrie's My Lady Nicotine. But I guess you could download it from the Gutenberg Project, print it out and have it bound as a book.
That is truly an amazing collection! I have about 8 of them, my favorite being "My Lady Nicotine". Every time I read the story about the smoking table, I laught until tears stream down my cheeks. Funny stuff. Anyway, I applaud your taste and I will have to try and add some of those to my collection.
WOW...can I come over... :lol!:
Thats one nice collection you have there.
