The only words on this are "bruyere garantie" which is German, the last word is a direct cognate and means guarantee, but that's the easy part! It separates into four pieces, the bowl is a metal insert with a cap and vented bottom plate to keep the tobacco from dropping through. The wood pieces have carved threads to connect with each other. The mouth piece seems to be bake-lite, but was affected by some sort of insect (I didn't catch that until I had it apart post-purchase and discovered the remnants of the insects) All age related deterioration aside, it's pretty snazzy and I'm curious if anyone else has dealt with one, or come across another example? There are a few on e-bay with closed auctions, but a google image search pops them up right away. I don't have pictures yet, I haven't been home long enough to do so. Thanks for reading!
