Pot the pipe

Patrick Higgins and I met at the Chicagoland Pipe Exposition in April of 2000. He showed this pipe and another. He said he was quitting smoking and wondered what their value might be. I told him the price I would pay and we parted company. Six months later he e-mailed me and offered the pipes to me at the price I had offered. I jumped at it because the English briar billiard was not represented in the collection and the Federal Gold Pot in the collection was in deplorable condition. My former example of the pot will go to the Pipes for Sale page now and both of Pat's pipes are happily ensconced in the collection. I have since come into possession of an even better example of Federal Gold Pot so this one has joined the Pipes for Sale page.

It took many years before Firmin Oliveira found the pipe and decided to have it for his own.
