Neat little pipe.  Pocket pipe.  Stem folds to make it even smaller.  Will go into my hunting vest.

I was wondering if anyone was ever gonna reopen this thread!  Nice pocket pipe; I had one made by Ropp years ago but it went away during a herd thinning a few years back.  Mine even had a little soft case.  Pretty grain on yours; mine was rather plain

 

Here's my latest gift to myself, a Peterson B5 c. 1970's.  There's a long story I won't bore you with about why I wanted this particular pipe from this particular era and I finally found one...

The second one is a pipe of my father's that had laid in my desk drawer for years; the original stem which was amber had totally disintegrated.  I finally sent it to a pipe restorer who  did a pretty good job matching the original stem color, made a new bone screw for it, etc.  Even though I don't smoke it much it's nice to have it back in the rack and functional again.  THat's my dad c. 1929 with his brand new Model A Ford, along with his father's watch...

Two good looking pipes.  I like the watch and its fob too.  Some day I"ll have a Peterson.

Well...like a bad penny this thread is back :)  Great looking pocket pipe and the Bulldogs are beautiful. 

 

This is my latest.  it is a COMOY St. James Billiard.  It was an auction find and came to me with an oxidized stem and the finish so cruddy you couldn't see the grain...turned out to be a nice hunk of briar.

My Dad used to smoke a pipe, I was going through some boxes and came across this brand new David P. Ehrlich Briar pipe which as far as I can recollect he received as a gift around 1976 which is just after he quit smoking.

I do not smoke, As many UJ'ers are from the New England area, and the David P. Ehrlich Company was long a stalwart of Boston, I thought that there might be some value to one of you.

 

Make me an offer if you are interested

The stem was gentle scrubbing with a green scouring pad, the wood was a soft cotton work towel with denatured alcohol till it was cleaned up.  then the salt treatment and then olive oil.

John, found this.  I really like the "pipe makers, not plumbers."

 

This is in keeping with a catalogue statement: “we have never ceased to regard smoking as an exquisite pleasure, rather than a mere habit." Another of the principles of the firm is embodied in the observation: "we are pipe makers - not plumbers. There are no tricky gadgets in Ehrlich pipes." But when a man drops his pipe, the makers will transform themselves into repairmen in a highly efficient manner.

Enjoying the thread!  Love a pipe.  BUT!  Last visit to the eye dr. he says "you are developing glaucoma --- got to give up your pipe.  Smoking a pipe your odds of glaucoma are greater than normal."

Just unpacked some more boxes after moving.   Interesting what you find.  My mother-in-law Lucy gave me this pipe years ago.

 

It's small, all metal, and that's a dragon's head on the side (same on the other side).  Shallow bowl with a small hole on one side.

 

Darn if Lucy didn't get me a doobie pipe.  By the way, never used.

A very cool pipe to have in the collection.  Some serious time went into making that...all metal and the design...it might be a Kiseru, a Japanese pipe for smoking kizami, a finely shredded tobacco that looks like fine hair.

 

That is a guess, as I have just seen pictures and have never smoked a Kiseru.  When I was a kid, a family friend smoked a pipe and he had a collection and he had a couple like your...some of the Kiseru are long and skinny too.,
