Another satisfying Patent reprieve.

Please excuse me indulging myself again.I never tire of saving older Petes from the graveyard!!

I thought you all might be interested in seeing evidence of this recent refurb.
It was recently acquired from Ireland,it is a cased 1903 small bent amber stem Deluxe Patent,in a fairly rough state.The main problem being that the Amber stem tip had been damaged sometime in the past.A previous owner had commissioned a unique repair, by providing a Silver lip guard to allow the pipe to be smoked.

Here are some before and after photos.The whole experience has been most satisfying.I am sure you will agree.


  1. Hello Jim, this one is absolutely cute. Look what is now in auction on ebay ...



  2. Hi, Jim,
    That restored Deluxe Patent is amazing! What a treasure.


  3. Thank you guys.

    Lukas,I would guess that the stunning pair of Patents in that E-bay auction will not reach the reserve and will be re-posted as a"Buy it now"or best offer for around $800.
