Bonjour, je ne suis pas une fumeuse de pipes, mais j'ai hérité de mon grand-père un porte pipe ancien accompagné de 4 pipes.

Je viens sur ce forum à la recherche d'amateurs et d’experts qui pourront m'aider.

Merci

Most likely, your pipes do not have much value, unless you want to remember your grandfather. In his time, men bought a pipe for $50 or less (this is in today's currency) and smoked the pipe until it was worn out. Then they would buy another one to replace it.
Très probablement, vos pipes n’ont pas beaucoup de valeur, sauf si vous voulez vous souvenir de votre grand-père. En son temps, les hommes ont acheté une pipe pour $50 ou moins (c’est dans la monnaie d’aujourd’hui) et fumé la pipe jusqu’à ce qu’il ait été usé. Ensuite, ils achèteraient un autre pour le remplacer.

Welcome to the forum! Perhaps you can clean the pipes and try smoking with them.
Bienvenue sur le forum! Peut-être pouvez-vous nettoyer les pipes et essayer de fumer avec elles.

Though it's true that there is an active market in used pipes, referred to as estate pipes, most of the more standard factory pipes go for low prices. The high end of the market, pipes that are often hand-carved by pipe artisans who are known names, can command high and very high prices, but these are a separate high end market. They do give people who inherit good old standard smoking pipes the idea that their pipes are inherently quite valuable, and they rarely are. As with fine art paintings, the average person not devoted to the profession should only buy what they want to use (paintings to hang on their walls, pipes to smoke) and not expect any investment value or resale profit. I'd keep those pipes as mementos of a loved family member.

Once your photos are on a photo hosting site (such as Imgur.com; Postimage; Dropbox, etc. Photobucket), or on virtually any site, including this site's album such as eBay, Amazon, you-name-it, select the full sized image, then Control-click (Mac) or Right-click (Windows) on the image itself, then choose "copy image location" or similar words. Now paste that URL (the full web address, which should end in .jpg or .png) into the IMG box in the reply window of the thread you're posting to.

merci pour vos réponses, je pense avoir compris mais pas tout, car la traduction n'est pas toujours excellente

Je vais réfléchir mais pour moi je n'aurais pas de regret si je vends le porte pipe.

Welcome aboard. Unfortunately I can't speak French, but my wife does. And I think it is not a wise thing to tell my wife about this website (other guys know why). I fixed the picture link by the way.

merci pour toutes vos réponses, site très sympathique

Bon j'essaye encore de mettre des photos
Je pense que le porte pipes pourrais convenir pour une personne qui aime le vintage?
