Apple the pipe

This pipe and three others came to me by way of an Internet search conducted by Andrew Williams. He had acquired a bunch of un-smoked the pipe which were not what he wanted because he was interested primarily in California Styles. When he found my Pipes for Trade page, he immediately contacted me about a couple of California Style pipes I had there and offered these four in exchange for two of mine. Although I wasn't anxious to part with my C.S. Dublin, I couldn't resist four brand new pipes that would improve the quality of the collection. So these four have joined the collection and their predecessors have become smoker/traders. When I got an NIB example, this one went to the Pipes for Trade page, although I won't smoke it to preserve its pristine liner. On closer inspection when I was revising this page I noticed that this pipe had been repainted from Sage Green. Oddly, the tobacco chamber has clearly not been used so I am guessing that, like others I have seen, the paint became so shopworn that the pipe was repainted professionally even though it had never been smoked. Ultimately Steve LaPlante bought this one for his dad. Pipe Photo
