I have just purchased a bulldog, when it arrives I’ll put some pics up. The photos where really bad and there was no description in the listing apart from “pipe”. The seller said it has no markings on it but it looks unsmoked, has a screw bone tenon and orofic buttonDo you have some? Could you post a photo, please?
No. Meerschaum continued to use screw in tenons for decades, though not necessarily bone. I'm assuming that there was more of a concern about cracking the shank by using a push tenon that led to continuing with screw-in assembly, but that's just an idle speculation.Would that apply to meerschaum pipes also?
Have you ever seen a push bone tenon? I’ll have to snap a pic of mine tonight. It’s an unsmoked Ireland souvenir pipe with shamrocks etc. most likely a K&P second carved locally.
