    Howdy all, not sure how many people read the introduction thread so I figured I'd post here in the hope I could get some help.

    I just inherited something very similar although not identical to the pipe discussed in this article.
    For the old world to new with love.

    I was looking for a way to post comments directly in the page itself but couldn't find a way to do it.

    I'm interested in finding out more/as much as I can about this pipe but have been unsuccessful in finding much information and was wondering if anyone might be able to point me in the right direction.

    Thanks in advanced

    That's a porcelain pipe, they are made in german speaking countries. Also called hunter/hunting pipes.
    Does your pipe have any markings on it? Maker's name or symbol or anything? Maybe you could post a picture?

    There are some fine examples here http://www.antiquepipeco.com/#/porcelain/4541246380

    We call them German wine pipes. Just put a little vino in that resevoir underneath the smoking bowl. I believe its a cherry wood stem. I've heard that they are getting hard to find in the U.S.

    Thanks for the replies.

    I haven't got a photo of it yet but it's almost identical to the one in the article linked above, the only difference appears to be at the top where the pictured one has thread wound around it mine is still the same wood that comes up from the bowl. It's missing the beads on the end of the string too, otherwise the picture and the stien like bowl are identical.
