I met up with a fellow member the other day, and he sold me all this for $40. He previously told me he'd sell the pipe rack for $30, but when we met up for a smoke, he said he'd throw in the book, leather pouch, AND a bulldog for ten extra bucks.

I tried finding info on the pipe, but did not succeed. All I have to go by is what's on the pipe. On the shank; W.H made in USA. Then on the stem; there is a white heart, and next to it "Hand Cut." Great smoker though. Nice open draw.

Anyway, here are the pics...

Alright, MM.
I've been all over Pipedia and Pipephil chasing this logo.
How did you find it, friend-o?

Jeez, I'm so sorry, GG. I would never hijack a thread intentionally.
I'm so glad you found the rack you were wanted. It looks terrific and those open stem mounts are always harder to find than the enclosed rings. You picked up a nice looking pouch and I really love that bent Rhodesian.
Good score, bud.

That is pretty neat. I was interested in the WH pipe logo/brand as well, since I recognized Ulster Park NY, which is where Park Lane Tobacconist is located (great shop!). A little more googling yielded a post on Tamp & Puff saying that WH pipe were sold thru Wally Frank in NYC. And an Ebay ad, which has a little detail:

I love a pipe mystery!

I have a pipe stand that looks almost exactly like that. I love the way the wood and glass look together.
