The Pipe Store

 Profits for the sale of pipes are given to the work of the Daughters of Bulgaria.

Thanks for looking! All the pipes offered have been cleaned thoroughly, and are ready to be adopted! You can read about the story of each pipe and their restoration by searching The Pipe Steward. The price listed is for the pipe. Postage is paid for by the buyer (first class US postal rates apply from Colorado and will ship internationally – bundling multiple purchases is possible ) but specific rates and options will be determined after receiving a mailing address. Payment can be sent using this direct link: PayPal.Me/ThePipeSteward or this email address: ThePipeSteward@gmail.com from your personal PayPal account.

When PayPal gives the option, “Friends and Family”, please consider me a friend so that I’m not charged a fee that takes away what I can give to the Daughters! Thanks!

Contact me  with your questions!  If you don’t see any pipes still available for sale here, it us because most pipe sales are from choosing unrestored pipes and ‘Commissioning’ them.  For information about commissioning, go to For “Pipe Dreamers” Only!

A Fratelli Rossi ‘Century Old Briar’ of Italy Billiard – The grain on this probable 1960-’70s vintage Fratelli Rossi is exquisite. The nomenclature claims it was fashioned with briar harvested a century before which would place this briar in the 1800s.

A ‘Dragon Skin’ Fabric/Resin Applique Bent Billiard – This unique ‘Dragon Skin’ fabric/resin applique looks great. It is a special ‘wrap-around’ of the briar that was in vogue in the 60s and 70s. The nickel shank cap and stem extender add a nice touch of bling as it unites the bowl and the fancy spigot stem. This ‘system pipe’ is very different with the metal bowl and draft hole in the center. The acrylic tenon or air restrictor fits well with this genre of pipe.

A Barontini Aldo Velani Trio Billiard of Italy – The ruby-burgundy finish initially draws one’s attention and then the clear, glass-like acrylic stem.  Finishing the ensemble is the golden double-bumped shank ring joining stem and stummel to present this classic Billiard after-dinner pipe.  This classic Billiard will provide great fellowship with one’s favorite blend and adult beverage.

A Barontini Aldo Velani Trio Pot of Italy – The Barontini name came onto the pipe production landscape in 1890 and has been based in Livorno, Italy, since then.  This Aldo Verani line is an upscale expression of Italian work and design. The Pot shape is straight forward as a cousin to the Billiard.  The gold ring is part of an eye catching transition from the burgundy/reddish tone of the bowl to the clear acrylic stem.  This is a classy pipe and you can read more about the restoration process at this LINK.  This pipe has been thoroughly cleaned and refreshed, and is ready for a new steward.  Length: 5 3/4 inches, Height: 1 3/4 inches, Rim width: 1 1/2 inches, Chamber width: 3/4 inches, Chamber depth: 1 3/8 inches.  SOLD Price $65USD + Postage to be paid by buyer.


A Belgian Hilson Fantasia Block Meerschaum Lined Billiard – This Hilson Fantasia Block Meerschaum Lined has transformed amazingly from being an interesting gimmick pipe to becoming an extremely attractive alternative pipe to briar.  The butterscotch hue of the bowl pops in relationship to quality Block Meerschaum lining. The added benefit is the ability of the Meerschaum lining to be used repeatedly without rest, unlike briars.  This makes for much fellowship!  The timeless classic lines of a Billiard make this Hilson Fantasia a great addition to a collection and possibly to add to one’s regular rotation.   More about the restoration process can be seen at this LINK.  This pipe has been thoroughly cleaned and refreshed, and is ready for a new steward.  Length: 6 inches, Height 1 3/4 inches, Bowl width: 1 3/16 inches, Chamber width: 3/4 inches, Chamber depth: 1 1/2 inches.  SOLD Price $60USD + Postage to be paid by buyer.

A ‘No Name’ Meerschaum Billiard – This classic Billiard shaped Meerschaum has a smooth rather than carved surface.

The classic Billiard shape is simple in its lines and form. More about the restoration process can be seen at this LINK.  This pipe has been thoroughly cleaned and refreshed, and is ready for a new steward.  Length: 5 13/16 inches, Height 1 3/4 inches, Bowl width: 1 3/8 inches, Chamber width: 7/8 inches, Chamber depth: 1 1/2 inches.  SOLD Price $50USD + Postage to be paid by buyer.


A French Paul Viou ‘Feather’ with Horn Stem – This ‘Plume’ shape, the French rendering of ‘Feather’, is a beautiful example of French pipe making with its subtle intricacies, flow, and lines.  The grain, especially the exceptionally tight Bird’s Eye, is pleasing to behold!  The horn stem with its gentle natural bend, has unique coloring.  The glassy shine of finely polished horn draws the eye and its rustic character will make it a pleasure to enjoy tobacco fellowship.  Last but not least, the Feather’s unique diminutive shape allows it to be cradled very nicely in the palm or stowed in the pocket.  More about the restoration process can be seen at this LINK.  This pipe has been thoroughly cleaned and refreshed, and is ready for a new steward.  Length: 5 inches, Height 1 1/8 inches, Bowl width: 1 1/2 inches, Chamber width: 3/4 inches, Chamber depth: 1 1/8 inches.  SOLD Price $70USD + Postage to be paid by buyer.

A Lorenzo Carnevale San Remo Rusticated Apple – This Carnevale San Remo lives up to the Lorenzo reputation of producing pipes that are ‘edgy’.  The saddle tan rusticated Apple bowl is expressive and when tied to the two-toned red and blue acrylic stem, the pipe truly expresses the carnival theme of colors and flowers commemorating the well-known Festival of Flowers in San Remo, Italy.  More about the restoration process can be seen at this LINK.  This pipe has been thoroughly cleaned and refreshed, and is ready for a new steward.  Length: 5 1/4 inches, Height 1 1/4 inches, Bowl width: 1 1/4 inches, Chamber width: 7/8 inches, Chamber depth: 1 1/8 inches.    SOLD – Price $65USD + Postage to be paid by buyer.

More about the restoration process can be seen at this LINK.  This pipe has been thoroughly cleaned and refreshed, and is ready for a new steward.  Length: 5 3/4 inches, Height: 1 7/8 inches, Rim width: 1 3/8 inches, Chamber width: 13/16 inches, Chamber depth: 1 5/8 inches.    SOLD – Price $65USD + Postage to be paid by buyer.


A Comoy’s Sunrise Made in London England H 16 VolcanoThis diminutive Volcano shape with a slightly bent oval stem has a good feel in the palm because of the broader heel of the stummel.  The reddish-hued grain is a swirling mixture of bird’s eye and horizontal pattern.  More about the restoration process can be seen at this LINK.  This pipe has been thoroughly cleaned and refreshed, and is ready for a new steward.  Length: 5 1/4 inches, Height: 1 3/8 inches, Rim width: 1 1/8 inches, Chamber width: 3/4 inches, Chamber depth: 1 1/4 inches.    SOLD – Price $55USD + Postage to be paid by buyer.

A French Dr. Geo Deposée Blasted Churchwarden – I’m very pleased with the results of fashioning this Churchwarden by re-purposing the French Dr. Geo Prince shaped bowl.  The ‘Dunhill’ approach to finishing the bowl with the deep rich red tones in the dark brown back drop is very nice.  The Dr. Geo Prince bowl serves well mounted on a long, flowing Churchwarden stem. The contrasting with the smooth and blasted briar surfaces is striking. You can read more about the restoration process at LINK.  This pipe has been thoroughly cleaned and refreshed, and is ready for a new steward.  Length 10 1/2 inches, Height 1 1/4 inches, Rim width 1 inch, Chamber width 3/4 inches, Chamber depth 1 1/8 inches.    SOLD Price $65USD + Postage to be paid by buyer.

      I wish I did. I have several Peretti pipes in the “Help me!” Basket but I’m in the US now and my work table is back in Bulgaria. It will be next February before I could get to it. I have several Oom Paul’s, a half bent Billiard and an Extra large straight Billiard available to restore but not until February! You can see these pipes pictured on my restoration of a Large Full Egg from that same Peretti lot (https://thepipesteward.com/2017/08/10/revitalizing-a-distinctive-l-j-peretti-of-boston-large-full-bent-egg/). Let me know if you can wait!

        Yeah I would love to see that pipe when you are done(Peretti oom Paul). I don’t think there is much doubt I will want it. Also the Jobey bent dublin is one I am also interested in. What do I have to do to get the ball rolling on the oom Paul and both if possible? Let me know what is next! Thanks Brian
