USA, 1930s

An Americam pipe from a pre WWII pipe collection. It reminds some Ehrlich pipes, but the stamping font is a bit different. Despite the respectable age, it’s still a good device to test new tobacco or smoke while you’re hunting, fishing, walking – whatever you prefer to do.

The pipe marking is “EXCEL GRAIN \ GENUINE BRIAR”. The length is 14.3 cm (5.63″), the bowl’s height is 3.5 cm (1.38″). External diameter of the bowl is 4.1 cm (1.61″), internal diameter is 2.2 cm (0.87″). The depth is 3.0 cm (1.18″) and this pipe weights 39 gr. Briar, vulcanite stem, no filter. The stummel had a number of more or less noticeable scratches, dents and fills which were carefully and reliably patched during the restoration. The bottom of the chamber is noticeably lower than the airhole.
