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.
