So, I came across a poker shaped pipe in an antique shop. It looked really nice, clean and was only $5 so i bought it. The stem needs to be addressed, from what I have read I am guessing it is vulcanite and has oxidized. Anyway, it is stamped "Curtis Draper" and I can not find anything anywhere about Curtis Draper pipes. I have found a W. Curtis Draper Tobacconist located in Washington DC & Bethesda MD that has been around since 1887, but nothing about them producing any pipes. I can't find any email address to try and contact anyone so... I am guessing it has to have something to do with them, but I'm not 100% certain. I guess I am just curious, I think I would most like to know the age of this pipe really. Also, IF it is from there I want to know the story of how it ended up in a small East Texas town...but the only way to know that would be to contact the original owner, oh well. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
