    Hi all,
    I bought this pipe on ebay on a whim some months ago. It's a billiard with the word "lantana" written on the bottom. I can't for the life of me find any info on where that company is, the closest google finds is a town called Lantana.

    Has anyone ever heard of it? I suppose it could be Pantana?

    Lol. I don't know if it is indicative of anything but the bit on it is particularly ligth and feels a bit more plastic than a typical acrylic stem. I imagine lightness is a sought after quality but something about this seems almost too light?

    Anyways thanks in advance,

    Saf

    Could it have possibly been L' Anatra? Post a pic of it if you can, that might help to identify it.

    Sorry I don't have a way to take pictures :/
    Well I've been smoking it and it's actually quite cool on the first few smokes. Surprisingly. I'm not experienced with higher end pipes but I wonder if the lightness is normal. I was a bit dissapointed when i got it cause the pics on ebay made it look a lot nicer than it was when i got it. But maybe it'll work out :)

    God I wish haha, that duck is awesome. It has no logo on the stem at all.

    That's the pipe maker I was telling you about.... maybe your pipe has had the stem replaced.

    lantana is a desert shrub. Doubtful it's that.
    Probably as Mark has said. L'anatra with
    a replacement stem.

    Yea I think its a dead company or something because it 100% sure says "(L)antana"

    Same as another pipe I have from a company called HAIG that seems impossible to find any evidence of, maybe a smaller tobacco shop or independent fellow...
