Default Estate Pipe Salvage Work: Before/After



A Brakner 1200 - possibly the nastiest pipe I ever found. It turned out nicely, I think.

Question Re: Estate Pipe Salvage Work: Before/After

Aren't the pics after and before? Or am I just more dense than I thought?

Nice work!

Thanks, Ph'omy. It took about a pint of spit, a lot of paper towels and a little sanding to set it loose. I own another 1200 and I was hopeful this forgotten pipe would recover and look as nice as the other, below.

Nice work you guys - all you guys! Salvaging a pipe that's been languishing in some dark corner of an antique shop or a dresser drawer is almost always fun and rewarding.

I need to find the before/after pics for some of mine. You guys make me motivated!

The pics of the three pipes together represent a real color change. Both the before, and after images show true color. They we absolutely filthy before clean up .... but I got all three for $9.99!

Default Re: Estate Pipe Salvage Work: Before/After

I'm not 100% certain that this post belongs in this thread since it wasn't a used/estate pipe but, since I did find it languishing in a dark corner of an out-of-the-way antique store, despairing of ever finding a good home and burning good tobacco (pipes have feelings too you know!) I thought i'd post it here anyway.

Today I picked up this pristine, unsmoked meer for $25 at an antique shop in Virginia. Soon after taking these photos I filled the bowl with my favorite tobacco and fired it up!

There is no name or marking of any kind on this pipe so I have no idea of its provenance. It's also my first meer and I have no experience with meers so I can't even tell if it's block or pressed (can you experienced meer smokers actually tell that at a glance?). I do know that there were no cracks or chips on it and it was completely unsmoked!
