    I bought this pipe with the intention of re-selling it. But after cleaning it up I can't bring myself to part with it. It's just too dang pretty! Lattice work is silver over a briar screw on bowl. Case is almost perfect as well.

    Sure. It has a strange center of gravity for hands free smoking. But I'll give it a try. It has been smoked before and the bowl is in good shape.
