    UK Pipe Smokers....or Lack Thereof

    Saw one myself last week at a bus stop in Staffordshire! I would have offered him a lift but we were going in opposite directions! Really took me by surprise ....

    What was Smoking a Pipe Like 100 Years Ago?

    My Lady Nicotine: a study in smoke by JM Barrie was published in 1890, as well as being a social commentary of the time in a very funny way, it gives a great insight to pipe and cigar smoking during that era. I enjoyed it so much on my kindle I searched out and bought a hard back copy!

    Dunhill Bulldog estate pipe

    Ah, I thought someone else had spotted it, I think sometimes dealers get the best lots from there but they like six at a time rather than a quality single item that will take time to sell on.....sorry to have beaten you, but I am glad too, its a great little smoker!

    Dunhill Bulldog estate pipe

    I paid £80 or $92US, there were two other bidders after it too so got pushed up quite a bit more than I was hoping, but having looked at ebay prices in advance I thought this would be its ballpark so wasn't surprised.....the auctioneer was though, obviously not a pipe smoker himself 🤠

    Dunhill Bulldog estate pipe

    I picked up this Dunhill estate pipe at a local auction house today and spent an hour giving it a good clean and polish. It seems in excellent condition and I could spend a lot more time on it but wonder if it is just fine as it is......it's easy to go to far....any views? (some before and after...

    Interesting headstone

    On a recent visit home I called into Minstead Church in the New Forest to visit the grave of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle....a pipe was left on the headstone......although it was well weathered! Another headstone caught my attention there too.....they were obviously a brother or sister of the briar...

    Comoy's Pipe Tobacco

    Plenty here in the UK......I can't understand why Brexit is being blamed....the UK is trading internationally with far more countries than it ever used to (before joining the EEC and then EU) .....Comoy's Cornish Mixture and the Scottish I can highly recommend when your suppliers get it back in
