    Great! If I could find one I'd earn points from my bride. She has a Westie, (and I have a Lab.)

    Any info on maker?

    I know that you believe you understood what you think I said, but I'm not sure you realize that what you heard is not what I meant.

    There is no name on it any where. When I bought it I thought it was bronze but it turned out to be cast iron. I'll post another when I get it cleaned up and painted. I haven't thought of a name yet lol.

    We had two Westies, so I have soft spot for tobacciana featuring them (or Scotties), of which there are plenty.

    Most of my "top pipes" are on Westie stands.

    The brass stands don't have any brand stamps.

    The wood base stands are sometimes stamped Duk-it, and the bases come in various shapes.

    The pressed wood stands are pretty common in a variety of styles. They were made of a material called Syroco and by the Syracuse Ornamental Company. This material was used for all kinds of items besides pipe stands.

    Oh my! That is a beautiful collection and expo thereof. Thanks, Al. I'll need to keep my eyes open in antique and thrift shops.

    That is a FANTASTIC collection of stands, AL! Oh, and love the OP's dog also. If someone made puggle pipe stands, my wife would be buying them for me by the crates.

    Wow! That's quite a transformation. Special thanks to the pix posters.
