This is an auction for a vintage briar wood pipe carved as a man smoking a cigar

This is one of several items I have been requested to list for auction by a friend who has been clearing his father's possessions. I am no expert in the subject of pipes and simply list this item as honestly as I can.

There is no manufacturer's name on the pipe, it is simply stamped ' FOREIGN MADE ' on the underside of the bowl where it joins the black stem. There are some small marks on the surface of the wood. I have no idea of its age or history.

The picture shows both sides of the pipe.

The approximate dimensions of the pipe are:

Length 16.1cm (6 5/16in) Width 4.1cm (1 5/8in) Height 5.6cm (2 3/16in)

The weight of the pipe is 82g.

Shipping cost within the UK is £3.30 by Royal Mail Second Class with a Royal Mail quoted delivery of 3 to 5 working days. This includes the postage, packing, handling charge and insurance .

Alternatively you are welcome to collect the item with cash on collection as the method of payment.

I will post this item worldwide by Royal Mail Airmail Small Packet. Shipping cost to Australasia is £5.90, to the rest of the World £5.80 and shipping to Europe would be £4.40; all with a Royal Mail quoted delivery of two weeks.
