i have seen this pipe - shape like a Bing, the brand being Marcelle, and no other mark. i hope it was made by Sauron:LOL:
there is a ring at the end of the shank : can anybody comprehend the runes :rolleyes: and its meaning.

I think that’s an early Gryffindor pipe from Dumbledore’s school days. Nice find!

Thanks, but not looking for links, just readable text. And is there not a source for the French text before it was translated?

the pipe arrived. not very cheap, but the stem is a replacement push fit whilst the shank is threaded, and the pipe is stained heavily. the only stamp on the shank is "Marcelle" with silver ring "VCF" (or CVF??) which most likely means Vincent-Couitier & Fils. French through and through puffy puffy puffy
