    Christmas auction wins

    I just received my Christmas auction wins and among them were this Viennese Coffeehouse Pipe set. Six clay bowls and one wooden stem. They are made in Germany but strangely it's not stated by whom.
    Another win was this, apparently second edition of the PipNet reamer set.
    I promise that I shall not post pictures of the two hideous pipe holders, I just could not resist.

    I've always admired that set of clays. Good going.

    Nice acquisitions, Jesper. It's not uncommon for clay pipes to lack a maker's mark. They have mostly been considered to be disposable items.

    Every time I see those pipes it reminds me of when I broke my Dad's clay pipe when I was "trying out the pipe." I was being sneaky and of course I got caught. Nice set and I can see that they were used very much but well cared for.

    Thank you, all.
    I'm very pleased with this set; both pipes and the box is in pristine condition. I'm thinking of having five more stems made.
    That bamboo stem on your very fine set, Tom, looks great.
    I have two Gouda churchwardens which I bought from Pibe Dan sometime in the eighties but unfortunately one broke during our latest house move.

    An old story goes that the reason the Dutch were so fond of clay pipes, was because of their laziness. If they dropped one, they didn't have to bend down and pick it up.
