    Usually you can find EVERYTHING on Google, about 30 minutes in and it's impossible to figure out who made this. I picked this up at an estate because it obviously looked intriguing. The only markings it has are on the bottom: GIM 372.

    I've also got an unmarked enamel pipe which you think would be easy to identify, but no luck with that either.

    Any help would be much appreciated!

    The first pipe was made to smoke something other than tobacco. In the 70s there were hundreds of small operations cranking them out to sell to head shops. Many of the parts used were standard fittings used to make lamps, so most of these pipes tend to look similar.
