    Just bought an estate Dr. Grabow Meerschaum-lined beautiful pipe in excellent condition. That's the only markings on the shank, on the bottom of the stem is Italy. My question is, do you have any idea when this pipe could of been made?

    1978-- 1981.. By GIGI PIPE in Varese, ITALY. How's that?
    In 1982 Grabow took over the production of M/L pipes stamped "Grabow". They didn't sell!.. ted

    Ted, I got a question for you. I have a blue colored Viscount and an Unsmoked Blue Duke- pat # 2461905. When did they stop making these pipes?

    Scottly....... Grabow as I knew it stopped selling them in 1994/5. Stopped making them about 1987/8..
    Lane (bought Grabow), and IP&A (ownes it today) still sold a few later (not new production). About 1/2 dozen assorted colors and constructions left in the lobby at Grabow.. Probably no more ... ever... ted
