    I've come across lots of pipe holders that were unique but this one takes the cake
    Would love to have it.

    As an otr fan I find that very, very cool. The pipes should have Bakelite stems though!

    For the AM radio band aficionado...

    1950's? Looks to be in great condition.

    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.

    I bet it wouldn't be too difficult to make a modern version of this with a Am/Fm radio kit or with a CD Player, or perhaps even MP3 if you wanted to go that route. Might make for a cool project.

    Good idea Anthony. Modern internals with the neat look of OLD. I am 1947 vintage too, probably not worth much though.

    That is way cool. A thoughtful inventor designer thought about making all the pleasures of life in one place

    Be that as it may, it probably never was...

    Very cool, I've never seen another. It also looks to be in mint condition.

    There is a lot of very cool AM radio here, especially at night. And, the internals on an old AM are fairly easy easy to repair. I wish I had of seen that earlier. I have a few of the old Gilligan Island style AM that I love to tinker with.

    So is it a pipe stand with a radio attached, or a radio with a pipe stand attached.

    Like bluegrass, I wondered if the radio remained functional. There is a wide market in vintage radios and they command substantial prices, as-is. They are quite beautiful, even the less elaborate ones. As a child, when tube radios were standard, I used to peak in the backs of them and "see" a little city at night with the "buildings" all lit up. Someone must be making the replacement tubes since this market has been going on now for decades. Vinyl records and the supporting equipment are becoming equally coveted and valuable. The new digital world does many and wonderful things, but in certain ways, it's not so good. You don't know what you got until it's almost gone.

    Hope this is not a shameless brag but I own one.

    Mid 90's I was working at a radio station. A co worker was a vintage radio buff. I had seen a picture of the Smokerette and asked him if he could hunt me down one through his hobby connections. A couple of weeks went buy and then he passed me the name and the number of a person who had one for sale. The radio had recently come out of a World War II veterans estate. The man had won the radio in a punch game and enjoyed it for a few years when he was a bachelor. His bride hated the radio but the man could not bring himself to part with it so it went into storage for something like 40 years.

    Without pictures, it's a shameless brag.

    With a nice array of photos, it's sharing pipe lore with the brethren...
