    I just won the auction on eBay for these two vintage and very odd pipes. I like to collect odd ones like this for display, and these will be interesting to research. Speak up if you know anything about either one.

    First one looks like a meer with copper accents, might be a good smoker with a longer stem, the second one looks like a hoof, and the stem makes me think the gurgle factor is off the chart, or you would be sucking straight drainage/juice/steam
    Interesting and cheap though, good find:th1:

    Both will look cool on display, so I'm pretty happy.

    Yes the hoof is a bit of a hoot, but the meer looks worth the cost of admission.

    Someone will try to save you from hoof in mouth if you are outside, or did you say you could eat a horse?

    What would be kind of neat, is if you make a "shoe " cap for the top, er bottom of the hoof

    I can't think of a more fitting buyer for those two.

    The one on the right looks like something Nording would have come up with while in his younger days using illegal mind altering substances. Interesting though, they both be.

    I'm sure when you smoke them you will get a second glance :beyes:

    Not sure Nording ever did Meerschaum and I am pretty confident that the pipe on the left is a meer.

    Hmmmm, does cannabis ghost? :bing:
