    David P. Ehrlich

    Today's project. Someone on another forum posted an Ehrlich catalog from the early 1960's, so I gave this one some TLC. A nice Bullcap shape Ehrlich Supreme Algerian Briar. I was an Ehrlich customer back in the '80's, mail ordered their tobacco by the pound. From the golden age of stand alone tobacconists, Ehrlich, E. Wilke, Cellini, and many others. These pipes can still be found in the estate market for very reasonable prices.

    Dave your knowledge and experience with pipes astounds me. That is very nice in shape and presentation of the briar.

    The two best known tobacconists in Boston, Mass. Ehrlich, now closed, and L. J Peretti, still in operation.

    Everybody by now knows I'm just not a lover of conventional shaped pipes, well maybe a couple including your Ehrlich.
    I like the shape of the bowl but, not so much the straight shank but, it being a Ehrlich got my attention. I started looking
    through my pipes knowing I had pick up a couple a while back. Well, I only found one and it's a freehand.
    Not wanting to hijack your post or anything, just thought you might like to see it since your interest in Ehrlich. My assumption
    is it is from the 70's, I may be wrong.

    Ron, I would have to agree '70s early '80s, style of the times.
