Just finished up this little pipe from the 20's - stamped Ehrlich. The stem is stamped England on the underside. This is probably a Sasieni like the other little Ehrlich I posted earlier. It came in the same lot of pipe. It is a small one - just shy of 5 inches.

I cleaned the bowl as it had tobacco remnants in it. I sanded the tooth chatter on the stem and then polished and buffed it. The finish was in great shape so it only needed to be cleaned and buffed. Here are the pictures.

Is the oblong shape of the bowl what constitutes an "Opera" Steve?

Nice refurb as always! I've had a few small oval bowled pipes back when...slip right into your shirt/jacket pocket. I need to find a couple of nice meers like that....................

Yes and the flatness. It makes it a pocket sized pipe. Perfect for an intermission.
