    Vicky Pipe

    What a lovely young girl she was ( deep sigh ) This is a sweet pipe, thank you for adding the link to the post of my BBB queen pipe ;) I've grown quite attached to Her Majesty.

    If I had only known :) Yet, it makes little sense to me. MP's pictures were so much better, why grab a pipe at a reasonable price and then list with crappy pics ? However; no matter his qualities as a photographer, he made a nice profit.

    As you noticed; seller listed it as being unsmoked , in the describtion as lightly smoked. Why sand down the shank of an unsmoked pipe I wonder ? Maybe he put one and one together :)

    Hi Dave, Please elaborate ; what are you thought about this particular pipe ? To me the stem looks "odd" or at least to be upside down on the shank . The nomenclature is weak.

    Watched the auctions too, I think the table pipe is a legit pre-war Comoy's . But $440,oo for a table pipe, no thanks . The OB is very nice, the stem is somewhat turned on the shank, fit is indeed not perfect. But that shape is to die for..... Grain's not bad either.

    I watched the auction and contemplated bidding, but it ended beyond my reach. Nice pipe though. Congrats to the winner; please step forward if you are a forum member :)

    Nor does the text, Rodrigo is getting more sloppy by the week. I do not mind one bit, as longs as he keeps selling good quality pipes. Which he always does and he is easy to deal with. Barling's straight grain are relatively rare and this one looks to be in fine condition.

    Not an outrageous amount is imho an understatement . I think of it as a steal , despite the somewhat out of round rim. There are no signs of burned briar , the exterior looks to be in fine condition accommodated with its original stem. How often does a magnum Barling's show up anyway ? I now...

    Depends on how you define freeshape. Looks like a lovat with a huge bowl, needed quite some tlc. Grain is super.

    If memory serves me correctly ( but I need to dig in my Charatan trunk ) I have a large Charatan Super billiard with a twin bore stem.

    Hello Kottan, Thank you for the advice ! There are several online retailers who ship abroad ( discretely ), like Herr Fleischmacher from Hamburg. I visited the shop once and purchased some cans of really old F&T Wingate Mixture. It still has some cigar leaf in it and is delicious . Is a bogey...

    On my behalf :) Thank you Kottan , when al this misery is behind us I will pay a visit to PH in Köln. The HU tobaccos peaked my interest , they are supposed to be very agreeable.

    Hello Kottan, By no means did I take offence , we are solely amongst friends here :) Also I do not quite understand your meaning, since I did not buy this poor, abused pipe. I purchased a pipe from this seller, it is quite some time ago. It was a beautiful Ashton. The shape was rare , the pipe...

    I was close, so close and I'm pleased you won it Jesse and not some "trust fund baby " . It is weird and I like weird stuff. Rodrigo is a stand up guy and I purchased quite some nice pipes from him. Yes, he is sloppy and this pillar of his charm sometimes opens up a wide window of opportunity .
