Not much to say, really, so I'll let the pictures do the talking.


And, after:

My Good God Amighty!
What a fine pipe.
Beautiful resto,

another job well done!
I love the looks of the flowing grain,

and the stubby chubby shape is great.
Wow.

"My Good God Almighty" - well said! What an amazing piece. And excellent job on the clean-up. That was one well-loved pipe.

Indeed, the pictures do speak for themselves,

but I do hope that after a special smoking moment,

some words may spring from your fount.

I love reading your writing on such stuff,

always a pure joy.

Lovely work klause and neat pipe. I have a similar period civic pipe number 48 on the underside of the stem which is sadly a fair bit more used than yours.

Thanks, chaps.
Anthony, that made me snort my coffee - might need to change m'shirt now!
Owen, any chance of popping up a picture? I'd really like to see it. I'll have another look at mine later to see if there's a number there anywhere - I don't recall seeing one. Would that be the shape number, do you think? Also, I'll try and get a pic of that BBB up later, to give you an idea is size (it's a small pipe)!
