There's no better place to look than our English estates.
From old-school marques to new-age artisans, we've compiled a large selection of estate pipes from all over the U. Many of these briars are of considerable vintage and rarity, making them highly collectible pieces. An estate pipe is any pipe that has been previously owned by someone else, including both smoked and unsmoked offerings.
Peterson pipes, Stanwell pipes, Butz Choquin pipes, Dr Plumb pipes, Orlik pipes, Falcon pipes, Savinelli pipes, London Made Budget Pipes, Comoy's pipes, GBD pipes, Kaywoodie pipes, BBB pipes, Viking pipes, Chacom pipes are just some of the selection here. There's a certain air of class that comes with most exports from Italy with this pipe being no exception.
As well as delivering only the best in shoes, Italy is famed for this excellent pipe and is found popularly amongst the connoisseur and is also a great introduction for newcomers.
Each estate pipe that we sell has undergone a thorough cleaning and disinfecting regimen before it is ever offered for sale.
Estate pipes are generally far less expensive than a new pipe of the same make, thereby representing an excellent value for the money, and for many smokers, a way to sample the wares of pipe makers they might not otherwise be able to afford.
Cross has been a Rhode Island maker of pencils and pens since 1858, but made stylographic pens, not fountain pens, for the first 80 years. Cross had at least 21 registered patents and developed “firsts” in the writing instrument field. London Luggage website shows the first fountain pen made about 1930.
The 2003 Cross Annual Report indicates that Cross was in Rhode Island to stay, but all indications are that outsourcing was occurring at that time.
Find the engraved citation on the nib or point of your Cross pen if your pen is a fountain pen.
Some points are 14k gold and are older points, and some have the country of origin of the pen.
The first people to smoke tobacco in pipes were the Native Americans who lived in the eastern woodlands of North America between 500 BCE and 500 CE.
These early smokers burned indigenous tobacco in clay or stone platform pipes, so named for their flat bases.
Over the next thousand or so years, the bowls of these pipes became more sculptural, frequently carved into the forms of ducks, wolves, and other animals.
