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 (about 12$ to the US from Bulgaria or less in Europe – 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 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 (coming soon).  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.


French Pipstar Standard 06 026 Dublin Sitter – This Pipstar is a product of France’s pipe manufacturing center, Saint Claude.  The Pipstar Standard’s grain is beautiful as it climbs the Dublin bowl and swirls here and there with bird’s eye and flame formations.  The rounded rim and the rounded heel compliment each other and the gentle slight bend of the oval stem create an extremely attractive ensemble.  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 7/8 inches, Height: 2 inches, Rim width: 1 1/2 inches, Chamber width: 7/8 inches, Chamber depth: 3/4 inches.    SOLD – Price $65USD + Postage to be paid by buyer.


Savinelli Dry System 3621 Bent Dublin – This is Savinelli’s version of a Peterson System pipe.  The tight Dublin bend presents a smart, compact look, with a genuinely nice flow from the bowl through the nickel shank cap that is carried through the military mount P-Lip stem.  The smooth briar contrasts with the blasted are nice – the internal rim ring and the nomenclature panel. 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 Beldor Studio Mini Churchwarden of Saint Claude – This diminutive Mini Churchwarden has an elegant hexagonal paneled bowl that showcases very nice briar grain in each panel.   The bowl is perfect for packing your favorite blend to enjoy if you don’t have much time.  It rests very nicely in the hand.  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 7 1/2 inches, Height 1 1/8 inches, Rim width 1 inch, Chamber width 5/8 inches, Chamber depth 1 inch.   SOLD Price $60USD + 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.


Savinelli Fiammata 2 611KS Briar Calabash – The grain presentation on this ample Briar Calabash bowl is reminiscent to me of Preben Holm’s moniker, ‘Follow the grain.’  The straight, fire grain reaches toward the rim and the rim’s rounded shape provides a view of delicate bird’s eye, a 3-D perspective of the tips of the fire grain’s release into the air.  The heel presentation is equally expressive of larger, more chaotic patterns – for me, characteristic of the origins of the fire.  The Briar Calabash shape also contributes to the ensemble with its sweeping curves and lines moving toward the gently bending stem. 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 13/16 inches, Height 2 inches, Rim width 1 1/2 inches, Chamber width 7/8 inches, Chamber depth 1 7/8 inches.    SOLD Price $70USD + Postage to be paid by buyer.


A Meerschaum Teardrop Lattice Billiard – What is unique about this Meerschaum Teardrop Lattice design are the size of the tear drops, or the egg-shaped carvings – they are large!  The fine circular scallop carvings are in comparison, small and tight.  The design of this Meerschaum is a classic carvers’ template in this genre of pipe.  The patina on the Meerschaum has a good start with the honey honed hues which complement beautifully the fiery waves of the acrylic stem.  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 5/16 inches, Height 1 5/8 inches, Rim width 1 1/8 inches, Chamber width 3/4 inches, Chamber depth 1 3/8 inches.    SOLD – Price $60USD + Postage to be paid by buyer.


A Barontini Aldo Velani Trio Bent Apple 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 Bent Apple shape is elegant.  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 1/2 inches, Height: 1 5/8 inches, Rim width: 1 1/4 inches, Chamber width: 3/4 inches, Chamber depth: 1 1/4 inches.  SOLD – Price $55USD + Postage to be paid by buyer.


A Kaywoodie Standard 33 Apple –  Kaywoodie is a quintessential American pipe name and this Standard Apple edition has that classic look. Dated in the 1960s, the briar grain spreads beautifully over the briar landscape with flame grain and examples of bird’s eye grain pattern.  The Apple fits well in the palm and is ready to go. You can read more about the restoration at this LINK.  This pipe has been thoroughly cleaned and refreshed, and is ready for a new steward.   Length: 5 1/2 inches, Height: 1 3/4 inches, Rim width: 1 3/8 inches, Chamber width: 3/4 inches, Chamber depth: 1 1/2 inches.  SOLD Price $60USD + Postage to be paid by buyer.


A Heritage Antique 86 Blasted Apple –  Heritage is the name of an American pipe manufacturer created by the S. M. Frank conglomerate in 1961 to compete with the English Dunhill quality and collectability.  This Antique line was the blasted version and this Heritage Blasted Apple is a beautiful competitor with Dunhill.  The 3-dimensional grain is exceptional and the finish emulates the Dunhill depth and richness. You can read more about the restoration at this LINK.  This pipe has been thoroughly cleaned and refreshed, and is ready for a new steward.  Length: 5 3/8 inches, Bowl depth: 1 5/8 inches, Bowl width: 1 1/2 inches. SOLD Price $60USD + Postage to be paid by buyer.


An Ehrlich Special Chimney  –  Ehrlich is the name of a Boston-based tobacconist that operated for a century before closing in 1968.  It produced pipes with the Ehrlich name stamped on them and this Special Chimney is one example.  The grain on the taller bowl is shared between flame and bird’s eye. Not a large pipe, but very nicely balanced to fit well in the palm.  You can read more about the restoration at this LINK.  This pipe has been thoroughly cleaned and refreshed, and is ready for a new steward. Length: 5 1/2 inches, Height: 2 inches, Rim width: 1 3/16 inches, Chamber width: 3/4 inches, Chamber depth: 1 11/16 inches.  SOLD – Price $60USD + Postage to be paid by buyer.


A Borge Mortensen Handmade of Denmark Bent Brandy – The nomenclature is in Danish – HANDARBEJDE DANMARK, translated as ‘Handmade of Denmark’. The grain on this Brandy shape was well conceived to enhance the sense of movement toward the Brandy rim. The bird’s eye grain on the heel is beautiful. The Cumberland stem is nice and brings this Danish pipe together nicely. The 3/4 bent stem has a nice hang to it and the pipe is a great size for a hands free enjoyment. You can read more about the restoration at this LINK. This pipe has been thoroughly cleaned and refreshed, and is ready for a new steward. Length: 5 1/8 inches, Height: 1 3/4 inches, Rim width: 1 3/16 inches, Chamber width: 3/4 inches, Chamber depth: 1 1/2 inches. SOLD – Price $70USD + Postage to be paid by buyer.


A Classic Altinay Latticed Tear Drop Meerschaum – I found this classic Turkish carved Meerschaum in an antique shop on Bulgaria’s Black Sea coast.  Altinay is a high-valued Turkish producer of Meerschaum pipes and is known for the quality of the block Meerschaum they use.  This petite Bent Billiard has developed the honey toned patina that increases its value and collectability that only enhances the intricacy of the classic carving. The pipe comes with the original custom case.  You can read more about the restoration at this LINK.  This pipe has been thoroughly cleaned and refreshed, and is ready for a new steward. Length: 5 3/16 inches, Height: 1 1/2 inches, Rim width: 1 inch, Chamber width: 3/4 inches, Chamber depth: 1 3/8 inches.  SOLD Price $65USD + Postage to be paid by buyer.


A French Leather Clad Longchamp Billiard  –  A classic leather clad pipe which was a result of the briar shortages in France during and after WW2, enabling less attractive briar externally to be utilized to continue the pipe manufacturing.  The leather gives a comfortable laid-back feel and the contrast between the black leather and briar rim is nice. The Billiard shape is the workhorse among pipes and this Longchamp settles nicely in the palm.  You can read more about the restoration 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 1/2 inches, Rim width: 1 3/16 inches, Chamber width: 3/4 inches, Chamber depth: 1 1/2 inches.  SOLD – Price $55USD + Postage to be paid by buyer.


A Made in London England Diplomat  –  There is no specific stamping on this pipe to indicate the maker, except for the COM, London, England.  The Diplomat shape has been described as a Squashed Apple or an oval-shaped Prince.  This diplomat’s striking grain is complemented well by the acrylic stem.  The gentle bend of the stem works well with the wide, full bowl that rests nicely in the palm.  You can read more about the restoration 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 1/2 inches, Rim width: 1 1/8 inches, Chamber width: 3/4 inches, Chamber depth: 1 1/4 inches.  SOLD Price $60USD + Postage to be paid by buyer.


A Made in Denmark Freehand Preben Holm  –  The nomenclature on this beautiful Danish Freehand is almost gone, but the style of this Freehand points to it being a work of the primary originator of the Freehand movement, Preben Holm.  The grain is spectacular!  It reaches vertically up the 2 1/2 inch height of the Freehand’s front bowed bowl and culminates in the classic rusticated plateau.  The plateau surrounds a deep chamber accommodating an ample load of tobacco for much reflection.  You can read more about the restoration at this LINK.  This pipe has been thoroughly cleaned and refreshed, and is ready for a new steward. Length: 5 3/4 inches, Height: 2 1/2 inches, Plateau width: 1 3/4 inches, Chamber width: 7/8 inches, Chamber depth: 1 3/4 inches.  SOLD – Price $85USD + Postage to be paid by buyer.


A Sculpted Bull’s Head Churchwarden  –  This sculpted bull’s head was chosen to transform into a Churchwarden.  The Bull was hornless and part of the restoration and transformation was to fashion horns out of Bulgarian cherry wood.  This was quite a undertaking, but the entire bull’s head motif points to ‘rustic’.  It is a mixture of rough and polished contrasting the sculpted crevasses with the smooth briar.  You can read more about the creation of this Churchwarden at this LINK.  This pipe has been thoroughly cleaned and refreshed, and is ready for a new steward. Length: 11 inches, Height: 1 1/2 inches, Head width: 1 1/2 inches, Chamber width: 5/8 inches, Chamber depth: 1 1/2 inches.  SOLD  – Price $85USD + Postage to be paid by buyer.


A GEFAPIP 500 France 26 S Bent Bulldog  –  This Bulldog was produced in the region of St. Claude – the pipe center of France.  The grain on the upper dome in vertical and is resolved on the lower bowl with bird’s eye and swirls.  The stout Bulldog shape is softened by the quarter bend of the stem – a nice pipe posture for relaxing in the palm.  You can read more about the restoration at this LINK. This pipe has been thoroughly cleaned and refreshed, and is ready for a new steward. Length: 5 inches, Height: 1 1/2 inches, Rim width: 1 1/8 inches, Chamber width: 3/4 inches, Chamber depth: 1 1/8 inches.  SOLD – Price $60USD + Postage to be paid by buyer.


A Sculpted Sultan Meerschaum of Izmir, Turkey – This is a classic Meerschaum sculpture with the face of a Sultan – a prominent theme with carvers from Turkey.  This Sculpted Sultan was fashioned by Ferit Urersoy under the name, ‘El – Iş’ of Izmir, Turkey.  The carving out of block Meerschaum is exquisitely detailed and the black acrylic stem creates an eye catching contrast with the sculpted bowl.  You can read more about the refreshing of this pipe here: LINK.  This pipe has been thoroughly cleaned and refreshed, and is ready for a new steward. Length: 6 1/2 inches, Height: 2 1/2 inches, Chamber width: 7/8 inches, Chamber depth: 1 1/2 inches.  SOLDPrice $75USD + Postage to be paid by buyer.

 


A Gold Crown Giant Bent Billiard – This pipe is a giant with a huge chamber for packing one’s favorite blends that will provide a longer time for reflection on life.  As with parts of life, the rough briar patch on the side of the bowl is not so beautiful.  It was a mess and took a lot of time to provide the healing that I now see.  Yet, there remains some scarring.  The dark stain does a great job helping to mask the imperfections.  Yet, as with life, this pipe will carry with it some of the scars of its past – the other part of our reflection.  The briar grain that dominates this bowl is beautiful!  I’m very pleased with the striking contrast the darker brown saddle tan finish provides.  Contrasting with the dark bowl is the gold plated crown band that then transitions into the stem with the waves of all the same color tones.  I like it.  The Gold Crown  Giant Bent Billiard will sit very well in the palm of its new steward.  You can read more about the restoration at this LINK. This pipe has been thoroughly cleaned and refreshed, and is ready for a new steward. Length: 6 3/4 inches, Height: 2 1/4 inches, Rim width: 1 3/8 inches, Chamber width: 7/8 inches, Chamber depth: 2 inches.  SOLD Price $70USD + 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!
