I bought a pipe repair business in 1984 ( is my website for repairs) and along with all of the machinery and supplies, i also acquired about a thousand unused pipes. Some of these were in perfect shape, some had a too loose or too tight stem, some had a cracked shank, some had stems that needed to be bent, some didn't have stems. All of these pipes were made between the 1950's to 1970's, some were even older. So all of the pipes that i am selling are still from that batch (i only decided to sell them this past september 2007).I want everyone to be satisfied with any pipe that they buy from me, if it has a problem, please let me know. You are bidding on a new/never used McAndrews White briar - briar pipe. The pipe is 5.25 inches long, has a white finish...it is not meerschaum. The bowl is 1 1/2" tall, 1 1/4" wide, with 1/4" walls, and a nice size bowl. It has a black lucite stem. The pipe is in good working condition, and will make a great additions to anyone's collection. please feel free to ask questions. Check out my other items !
