Very occasionally I am fortunate enough to find in my job lots an item that is so good or so rare that I nominate it as a “Museum Piece”. This means that for once I do not advocate smoking these rarities but keeping them for display. Of course there is nothing stopping you smoking them if you want to, perhaps as a treat on high days and holidays, but these are pieces you keep in your stable to make your friends jealous.
ON OFFER TODAY
Today I am offering a beautiful early Meerschaum. This has obviously been someone’s pride and joy as it has been very well looked after. The bottom of the pipe has taken on that lovely rich deep brown, that at first glance appears black, that comes from decades of smoking. It is fitted with a hazel stem with a horn mouthpiece and white metal fittings. I am certain these are silver. The silver is unmarked except for the initials ‘PVJ’. Not the pipe of a workman but someone who could afford to spend a lot of money on his pleasure. It is a beautiful little pipe and is in very good order.
I believe this is a French or Austrian pipe circa 1850-1860.
This is a jewel that would sit well in anyone’s stable. Here is a chance to own a really piece of smoking history, good luck and offer hearty!
This is a lovely pipe so offer hearty and good luck!
