|1900 BBB #108025
|Thanks to the input of some customers who have a much better
grasp of logic than I, this pipe can be identified as Edward VII of
England, the monarch who took over the crown (and all that
money, which just rolls in as the Brits tax the daylights out of
tobacco and everything else they can) when his Mum, Victoria,
went the way of all flesh, royal or otherwise. He then said,
"Gentlemen, you may smoke," (the old hag having forbid that
kind of frolicking in her presence). My bet is that about 13 min.
after he made that statement, BBB started on this pipe. I truly
love offering pipes like this...or more precisely, I love having
them. It means a lot more to me than anything produced today,
regardless of merit. This, to me, is history. And, of course, no
stamping of his name on the bowl would have been necessary.
6" long, bowl 2.25" tall. Weight: 2 oz., 58 grams. Used. $425.
