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 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.  SALE PENDING 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


Savinelli Dry System 362 Bent Dublin – This is Savinelli’s response to the Peterson System pipe which is purported to improve upon the design by adding the optional Savinelli balsa filtering system to augment a trap design.  Savinelli’s P-Lip stem also is easier to clean and has a different button design to diminish tongue burn. This Savinelli Dry System has an attractive tightly applied rusticated bowl contrasting with a smooth briar rim that is beautiful.  The classy 3/4 Bent Dublin bowl settles very comfortably in the palm for a great time of fellowship. 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 3/8 inches, Chamber width: 3/4 inches, Chamber depth: 1 1/2 inches.  SOLD – Price $60USD + Postage to be paid by buyer.


A Fancy French Butz Choquin Camargue 1683 Prince – I call this Butz Choquin Camargue a ‘Fancy’ Prince shape and truly he is fancy.  The grain generally moves in a horizontal fashion around the bowl and tightens as it moves downward to the heel.  Large swoops of bird’s eye grain also punctuate the landscape.  Adding to the ‘Fancy’ is the acrylic shank extension with the embedded BC rondel transitioning to the gentle bend of the fishtail stem which splays outwardly. This BC Prince’s bowl fits very nicely in the palm.  You can read more about the restoration of this BC Camargue here: LINK.  This pipe has been thoroughly cleaned and refreshed, and is ready for a new steward.  Length: 6 1/16 inches, Height: 1 1/4 inches, Bowl width: 1 5/8 inches, Chamber width: 7/8 inches, Chamber depth: 1 inch.  SOLD Price $60USD + Postage to be paid by buyer.


A Harvey – LONDON PARIS NEW YORK Meerschaum Lined Rusticated Dublin  – There is some mystery surrounding name and origins of this striking Harvey Rusticated Dublin. I do believe the most plausible theory as to the origins of this pipe is that it is a ‘shop’ or ‘store’ pipe that was produced by a pipe manufacturer and stamped.  The English source of manufacturing is plausible with a possible Sasieni connection.  My guess is that it is a commemorative production of some sort with the ‘London Paris New York’ as the banner.  For what commemoration, will remain shrouded in mystery.  Yet, not shrouded in mystery is the striking, tightly woven black rusticated finish.  The contrasting honey colored smooth briar of the rim, hugging the Meerschaum on the inside and blanketed by the black rusticated texturing on the outside is, well, I can’t take my eyes off this pipe!  Frosting to the cake is the contrast of the smooth underside panel holding the mysteries of the nomenclature.  The Dublin bowl adds a bit of attitude to the ensemble! You can read more about the restoration of this Harvey at this LINK.  This pipe has been thoroughly cleaned and is ready for a new steward. Length: 6 inches, Height: 1 7/8 inches, Bowl 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 Carey Magic Inch Patent Apple – One’s first impression (or at least mine) of the quintessential American patented Carey Magic Inch is its bells and whistles with the ‘Magic’ hype.  Yet, without having ever tried the patented filtering system for myself, I must rely on the years that it has been in use.  Yet, there is nothing hyped about the quality of the grain of this Carey Apple stummel.  Wow!  The grain is almost without blemish. The grain patterns are tight and dense with a varied swirl moving diagonally.  The heel of the flat underside is full of nicely woven bird’s eye pattern.  The Apple bowl is very happy to rest in the palm and to serve!   You can read more about the restoring of this Carey Magic Inch 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 1/2 inches, Bowl width: 1 3/16 inches, Chamber width: 3/4 inches, Chamber depth: 1 7/16 inches.  SOLD Price $50USD + Postage to be paid by buyer.


Meerschaum Sculpted Paneled Pot – This Meerschaum has never been smoked, donated to The Pipe Steward to benefit the Daughters of Bulgaria! Length 5 1/16 inches, Height: 1 5/8 inches, Chamber width: 3/4 inches, Chamber depth: 1 1/4 inches.  Price $40 + Postage to be paid by buyer.


A Sandblasted French GBD Sablée Standard Bent Billiard – The French origins of this GBD leave us with questions of its dating – pre- or post- 1981, the merger which marks the eras of the GBD name.  Even though this will be lost to us in history, at least for now, there is no disputing the exquisite quality of this pipe’s sandblasted briar surface.  It is a classic Bent Billiard workhorse with an elongated stem that adds to the sweep of this pipe.  The flat, cut stem design also adds to the uniqueness.  You can read more about the fashioning of this GBD Sablée Standard LINK.  This pipe has been thoroughly cleaned and refreshed, and is ready for a new steward. Length: 5 7/8 inches, Height: 1 3/4 inches, Bowl width: 1 1/8 inches, Chamber width: 3/4 inches, Chamber depth: 1 5/8 inches.  SOLD Price $60USD + Postage to be paid by buyer.


An East German Howal Sculpted Churchwarden  Churchwardens are sought after additions to pipe collections because they are simply cool – both in appearance and in the experience they provide.  This Churchwarden was fashioned from a re-purposed Howal sculpted Apple bowl which has beautiful contrasts between the smooth briar grain and the sculpted designs.  The history of the ‘behind the Iron Curtain’ Howal name is fascinating and adds to the collectability of this Churchwarden.  You can read more about the fashioning of this Howal Sculpted Churchwarden at this LINK.  This pipe has been thoroughly cleaned and refreshed, and is ready for a new steward. Length: 10 1/2 inches, Height: 1 1/2 inches, Bowl width: 1 3/8 inches, Chamber width: 13/16 inches, Chamber depth: 1 1/4 inches.  SOLD Price $65USD + Postage to be paid by buyer.


French Butz Choquin Supermate of St Claude 1596 Panel – This BC is a classic Panel shape with a square shank tapering into a flowing squared stem – very nice lines complementing the overall presentation.  The grain is a combination of straight grain and bird’s eye.  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 1/8 inches, Chamber width: 3/4 inches, Chamber depth: 1 7/16 inches.  SOLD – Price $60 USD + Postage to be paid by buyer.


A Comoy’s The Lumberman SPECIAL Canadian – This Canadian was without doubt, one of the most challenging pipes I have restored and also amazing was that it was commissioned to be restored.  The grain of this classic Canadian shape striking and against all odds is ready for his new steward.  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: 6 1/8 inches, Height: 1 11/16 inches, Rim width: 1 1/4 inches, Chamber width: 13/16 inches, Chamber depth: 1 1/2 inches.  SOLD – Price $60 USD + Postage to be paid by buyer.


Meerschaum Sculpted Lion – This Meerschaum has never been smoked, donated to The Pipe Steward to benefit the Daughters of Bulgaria!  Length 6 inches, Height: 2 inches, Chamber width: 5/8 inches, Chamber depth: 1 3/8 inches. SOLD Price $75 + 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
