    Standing on top of the hill looking down at a herd of cows a young bull looked up at his elder and said "let's run down there and get us a couple." To which the senior bull responded, "let's walk down and get 'em all."

    It's for knocking out ash and leftover tobacco from a pipe; the cork prevents the rim of the pipe from getting banged up. The bottom of the cork has an adhesive coating allowing it stick to the ashtray.
    They're available from most pipe tobacco retailers and don't cost very much. I recommend them.

    After all of the statistics and reports are finished with, I've come to the conclusion that the only real danger of smoking a pipe is being interrupted.

    Nor did I. But if you buy the 1912 catalogue from Briar Press, you will find the most gorgeous cased pipes starting on page 160. P. 228 shows a case with 1 block meerschaum, 1 calabash lines with black meerschaum and 1 briar pipe. And another case with 2 block meerschaum and 2 briars. The pictures are to die for.

    Starting on page 229 they are selling South African Calabashestill page 237.

    Page 239 is block meerschaum. Pages 240-241 are Coudron, which is compressed meerschaum, goudronised. Pages 243-253 show carved meerschaum, including a dragon claw that Anthony would go crazy for on p.248

    This pipe and case look like shape J on page 242, possibly with the ambroid mouthpiece in a broken Moroccan leather plush lined which cost about 13 shillings back then. They also had similar pipes in Russian leather cases lined with chamois and amber mouthpiece for about the same price but this case seems to have plush.

    The button on this pipe is orific, the screw is in the shank and has an extremely fine diameter that I can just barely get a pipe cleaner through. The only markings are inside the case where there is a BBB symbol. I am guessing it is also pre-WWI but have no proof except for style and the catalog.

    What is even more impressive are the cigarette tubes!!!

    The cork is to knock the Dottle out of the pipe without damaging the rim. So you invert the pipe and can tap the cork until everything has fallen out. You can also buy the corks individually with a sticky label on the bottom and stick them in any ashtray.

    It's a beautiful, historical pipe indeed, Mark. I really should get that BBB book.
