    This was one of the worst descriptions I've seen in a while "Antique/Vintage CPF Best Make Smoking Pipe, Gold, Bakelite or Lucite Mouth" It looks like what I bought is a Meerschaum with Redmanol Stem and Gold Band probably from right around 1900...which is a little confusing, because I didn't think Redmanol was invented until maybe 1910. Should clean up nicely....

    What's the difference between Bakelite and Redmanol?

    I like coffee exceedingly.
