Apple the pipe

Jay & Louise Jones of Hermit Tobacco had a table at the Chicago 2006 show with these pipes they held onto for me. They were appointed by the estate executors of the late Tom Dunn (Editor/Publisher of The Pipe Smoker's Ephemeris and founder of The Universal Coterie of Pipe Smokers) to liquidate his massive tobacciana collection. Knowing my interest in these pipes and my willingness (eagerness even) to pay exceeding well, they gave me first refusal on his seven Venturi, Inc. pipes - five the pipe and two THE SMOKE. I took them all. The paint on this one has some dings, but it is a better example of the color/shape than the one in the collection. So this one joins the collection and its predecessor goes to the Pipes for Sale page. Within the year, an even better example came my way, so this one now joins the Pipes for Sale too. A year later, Steve Ciesicki traded me a Bent Avocado Green the pipe - Made in England for it.
