Marked 'Genuine Italian Briar' this attractive estate pipe features a Dublin bowl with a long straight vulcanite shank. It has been smoked and enjoyed. There is a very nice little green band between the stem and shank, and I think it might be bakelite, which would make this piece older, however I have no real knowledge. There is a scratch on the underside of the bowl. Please view photos.
This is a lovely vintage pipe and would be great restored. I sell my pipes in the condition I find them as I don't want to damage them in anyway - however estate pipes are FULLY restore-able and are great for collectors or for pipe tobacco aficionados.
