My grandmother came to my house for Christmas, she is 80 years old. She brought me some nice gifts. Some people probably wouldn't consider them nice, but I do. She brought me three pipes and a pipe holder that belonged to my Great-Grandfather, he passed in 1991. He was an old codger smoker, so be prepared to see some rough looking codger pipes with some caking. One of his pipes I have, I received from her last year was from the 1920s. I haven't tried dating these pipes yet, but if you see one you recognize, I will take the help. This pipe has a white W on the stem and has Whitehall Saratoga Briar Italy on the stem. This one has Mello Root Imported Briar on the bottom. This pipe is in very rough condition. This one is a Medico Imported Briar with a white F on the bit. You can also see he wore a hole in the bit. This is the pipe my son got me for Christmas. It is not old of course. It came from Russia. It smokes great.
