The item(s) for sale belong to a large collection of smoked and unsmoked pipes and pipe smoking accessories which has been commissioned to me for sale. We will reply the soonest possible. All descriptions are to the best of our ability.
If something that you consider important is overlooked in the description, we can assure you this is unintentional, and we would be glad to hear from you. Please examine the photos in the listing as they are part of the description. The items for sale are photographed using high resolution lenses from all angles so that you can make your own assessment. We have selected not to list uncleaned "as is" pipes, for the reason that important defaults may be hiding behind dirt, oxidation or cake.For this reason we prefer the long and tedious work of cleaning them before they are offered for sale. Oxidation is removed from the stems and then they are sanitized using pure alcohol. The stummels are carefully cleaned and then sanitized. Most of the cake is removed from bowl interior of used pipes, leaving a thin layer of only about 0.5-1.0 mm cake so that the pipes do not need to be cured from start. Unless otherwise stated in the description, sales offer is for the smoking pipe only. Any other objects appearing in the photos (such as pipe stands, tobacco tins etc) are for display purposes only and are not part of the offer. However, some countries can only be served by EMS/DHL/UPS service. If in doubt please ask at your local post office.
