    One of my staff members found this pipe in an old trunk that belonged to her late grandfather. The trunk was in storage for at least twenty five years. The bag is deteriorating but you can still read Emperor over World's Choicest Briar. It is a small pipe a little less than five inches long. It has been smoked very little. Very nice of her to think that I might like to have it!

    Obviously I haven't cracked the photobucket code.

    Wow. Looks like NOS (New Old Stock). Did some quick research on Pipedia. Not much on either Emperor Pipes or Continental Briar Pipe Company and nothing on Empire Briar Pipe Co. Nice little pipe though.

    Look at the prices listed. $3.50 for a brand new pipe? Things certainly have changed.

    As long as I got a pipe full of baccy and a nose full of snuff, I'm a happy camper

    If only we can go back in time

    When I was knee high, I thought that my late grandpa made the clouds in the sky with his cigar smoke, only to find out later it was his pipe smoke.

    $3.50 $5.00 $7.50 probably, what 1960's ? If they were $1.50 $2.50 $3.50 in 1942.

    Roth found an ad on EBay from 1943 for Emperor Pipes. The price range in the ad is the same $3.50 to $7.50 as the brochure accompanying my pipe. Don't know what that means for mine. It's a cool little pipe! Smoked a bowl of Carter Hall in it this afternoon. Nice smoker!

    It's very unusual. Just not a pipe I had ever heard of. That's what make our hobby interesting.

    I won an Emperor standard pipe on Ebay a week ago for $9. The stem was oxidized and pretty foul. Some oxi clean fixed it up! I have smoked one bowl so far and its a nice lil smoker!

    @buster

    Does yours have the same type of stem system as the ones previously mentioned? If so, does the pipe show a patent number?

    No patent number. The stem has, "hand finished" on it and the briar says standard and Emperor emported briar.wonder if this could help date the pipe? Any one know?

    Ahh, OK. The reason I ask is that I'm intrigued by these "reverse-tennon" style systems from the 30s and 40s, like the Pur-O-Matic mentioned above. The one in the 1942 Ad looks almost like a hybrid between patents 1888462 and 1936060. I have examples of both those patents and I see elements of both in that Ad. Just thought if yours had a patent number it would be a good cross-reference.
