Bent Venturi

The value of pipe #274 is 35 points.

At the Richmond, VA pipe show, I found this lonely example of Venturi on Milton Clapp's table. We talked it over two or three times before I finally bought it from him. It turned out to be in better shape the the exemplar already in the collection, so this one now becomes the exemplar and the former goes to the Pipes for Sale page.

When an un-smoked example came my way this one found its way to the Pipes for Sale page too. Greg Meckes bought this one and two others because he heard they could take the abuse he expects them to endure on his new military assignment in Korea.
