    Just received a new shipment.

    I was fortunate enough that my brother was back home over the weekend and just brought back more pipes.

    Here are some of the goods. In the first picture - The left/middle row are Preben Holm. The right-most row are a Preben Holm with a broken stem, P. HOLM, and Prominence.

    In the second picture The Left row are Caminetto, the middle row are Radice, and the right row are Ascorti.

    The last two pictures show the stamping. A Sven Lar Grade A, and an S. Bang 7.

    I figured there would be interest in seeing these pipes here on the forums. I haven't gotten around to taking pictures of all the Stanwell pipes yet, those and James Upshall are coming up later.

    Museum pieces.
    The best teachers tell you where to look but not what to see.

    S. Bang, that one is a big deal. What are the two pipes in the top picture, far right two and three down?

    edit: P. Holm correct? I should have read your post more carefully...

    Yessir, those are the P. HOLM pipes. I did some mild research on the pipes I found last night and I immediately noticed the prices S. Bangs were going for on eBay. I don't intend on selling that one without getting it some TLC. The stem is also firmly stuck so I won't be messing with it, either. I will let a professional handle that pipe.

    Fork me running!



    Okay, Chris. You've used up all of my envy for the rest of the year and a good portion of next year's too. I'm spent until at least next August.

    Continued.

    In the first picture, All Stanwells, all but the right column are Reg. Numbered.

    The second picture are the James Upshall pipes.

    The third/fourth pictures is a Straight Grain Loewe.

    The fifth picture are pipes from the Tanganyika Meerschaum Corporation, mostly Kiko, and for being a meerschaum company, much more briar than I was expecting. The bamboo pipe at the bottom of the picture has no markings, it was just included in the box.

    Continued.

    The first/second pictures are a BB&S Londoner. 5589

    The third picture is an unsmoked, unmarked pipe. It seems to have been made out of a solid piece of stone. It is very heavy and the stem feels like it is also made out of stone.

    The pipe in the fourth picture only says "Genuine Amber" on the side. The inside of the case says "Warranted French Briar" The very tip of the stem looks to be missing, and there is what feels like a very old rubber band wrapped around the bit.
