    Thanks Ill no doubt be adding to it some time soon. The two on the left in the rack with the white inner bowls, I thought they were meersham? Or thats what I was told. And again I thought there is a cob there with the broken mouthpiece? I have much to learn .

    I don't see any pipe with a broken mouthpiece let alone a cob, however you are correct, the pipes with the white bowl inserts are meer-lined briars...

    Rusty may be thinking that the poker in the back right is a cob.
    Need better pics of that to tell.

    Thanks all, Ill take a few close ups when I can, and post here. The bullwinkle has only one eye and no horns left, lost over the years, my dad was in the buffalos and he recieved it as a gift of my mum in the late sixties I believe, never smoked it yet but intend to sometime.
    Ill get to work cleaning them up soon too, and what I thought was a cob has the word ROPP on the stem and Ropp deluxe France 933 on the underside of the bowl. Also the stem has a screw thread screwing into the bowl with a metal tube inside the stem.
    Whats a GDB? Showing my ignorance again.

    Rusty, in the smaller pics the oval around the Ropp stamp reminded me of the GBD oval...hence why I thought it was a GBD. Anyway here is a link to a 1975 Comoy's catalogue that has your pipe, or at least one close to it:

    There were quite a few more pipes, a mixture of Falcon and different shapes of the meersham lined ones too, but a friend of the family borrowed them some years ago and they went missing, very dissapointing. But Im enjoying these and will get them cleaned up and used . Ill have to dig about for at least one other pipe rack in the shape of a barrel with metal pegs that you lean your pipes against in a circle around it.
    Any tips on how to clean up the mouthpieces would be great please.

    Thanks Rugs, so mine is a cherry delux with a curved mouthpiece? Well a semi curve as the tip is broken off. Thats interesting. Are these good smokers, or do they have a certain way about them being cherry wood?
