 ·    Description

Pipe.  This is a very unique pipe and the
only one like it in the world because it was carved by its former owner.

While buying this pipe the owner’s wife told me that it was carved by its owner, a mechanical engineer, from
a nice piece of briar.  The briar is
unfinished and shows unique tool marks on the shank and stem.  It has two surface flaws on the shank.  It has a unique bowl.  Very lightly used; nicely seasoned, splendid
vintage piece.   Purchased at an estate
sale of a retired mechanical engineer.

A very unique
addition to your collection. This will be packed well and shipped promptly.

questions please send a message...

have more vintage pipes from the same estate sale available.  Check them out, we combine shipping....

·     Defects – Please
examine the pictures carefully.  Two surface
flaws in the briar on the shank and two small marks on the bowl right front
side.  Very minor bite marks on the bit.

Exceptions:  None



 ·    Dimensions: The
approximate dimensions are 5” in length; 1 7/8” bowl depth and the chamber
diameter is ¾”. 

 ·    Weight – The approximate
weight 41 grams.

 As always, I am happy to combine
shipping for multiple items purchased.  Please

 Thanks for looking!!


 If you are the winning bidder, I will send you an eBay
invoice with the total cost, including: packing labor, materials, shipping
costs, insurance, and any additional related costs. If the listing ends over
the weekend, you will normally receive an invoice on Monday.


 PayPal payment is expected and due within three (3) days
from the date of your invoice..  Items
purchased and delivered within Indiana
are taxed at the state sales tax rate of 7%. 
If you have an Indiana
resale number, you will need to provide a photocopy with your payment, or
include the tax due. I am sorry, but there are no exceptions, as this is the

 I will email when I receive payment and when I ship with the
delivery confirmation or tracking number. 
I strive to make each and every transaction trouble free and the best it
can be.


 I enjoy leaving you great feedback as soon as our
transaction is complete to let everyone on eBay know you do business in a
responsible way.  I will appreciate it if
you do the same.


 Your payment by PayPal is welcome.  Import duties, taxes and charges are not
included in the item price or shipping charges and are the buyer’s
responsibility.  Please check with your
country’s customs office to determine what these additional costs will be prior
to bidding/buying.  These charges are
normally collected by the delivering shipping company or when you pick the item
up; do not confuse these charges with stated shipping charges.  I will not mark customs declaration below
purchase price or mark items as gifts.  U.S. and
International government regulations prohibit such behavior.


 Every item I offer is guaranteed to be in the as described

 I sell mostly art, antiques and vintage collectibles, which
w/ill usually have the normal wear that you would expect to occur from normal
use and age.

 You are guaranteed that there are no repairs, alterations,
or damage, unless I specifically mention them in my condition report above.


 I do my very best to accurately represent each and every
item I sell.  I do not sell reproductions
of any kind, unless they are clearly described as such.

 I welcome input from dealers and collectors in specialized
areas, to help insure my listings are complete and accurate.


 I will be sending your item from Schererville, IN 46375.

 Most items, which can be packed in a box measuring up to 12
x 12 x 9, are normally sent by USPS Parcel Post with full value insurance, and
delivery confirmation.

 Larger items are usually sent by ground service, e.g., Fed
Ex Ground or UPS.

 If you want your item shipped by another method, please
email me with special instructions.

 Please note that all shipping cost estimates are just
that...estimates, as the item is not actually packed until it has been sold,
and it's destination is known.

 Our shipping cost estimates are normally accurate, but, it
may cost more to ship your item than is estimated.  If this happens, you will be responsible to
pay the additional shipping costs, and we will provide you with proof of the
additional shipping costs upon request.

 If it is discovered that the shipping costs have over
charged, the difference will refunded.


 No handling charges unless stated under “Exceptions.”

 If the item is large, i.e., larger than can fit in a 12” x
12” x 9” box and/or more fragile, the more it costs to pack it properly.  If an item is larger and/or more fragile, it
is packed to survive the shipping according to the accepted standards required
by the shipper.  Should this be the case,
then there will be a handling charge of $2.00.

 On an expensive fragile item, it may need to be put into a
double box. This will require additional labor and material costs.  It is preferable to pack your item properly
to make sure that the item arrives intact, rather than to deal with a claim.  The additional handling costs will be
identified and presented in the eBay invoice.

 I care about the survival during shipping of the items I
sell on eBay, and I want them to arrive in the same condition as when sent.

 In compliance with eBay guidelines, it will now be required
to have a  return receipt with international
shipping.  These cost an extra $2.20.
Also, insurance is determined and added into the cost listed on the invoice
once the purchase is made.


I usually ship within three days of payment confirmation.

As you know, eBay is making some shipping policy changes
which we will be required to follow as they are implemented.

 If the item is large or heavy it can be shipped using Fed Ex
or UPS.


If you plan on bidding on multiple items, your item will be
held here until the end of the upcoming auction so all items can be shipped

 100% of the savings are passed onto you, in the form of
reduced shipping costs, which will show on the invoice for the additional item.


 Refunds:  If an item is misrepresented, such that it is
worth less money due to an omission or error in the listing, you may return it
for a full refund including all shipping costs, so you do not lose a dime.  An example of this might be undisclosed
existing damage, like a chip or crack. 
If the item description is in error, but it has no effect on its
monetary value, then there will be no refund. 
An example would be if the measurements were slightly off, e.g., if it
is stated that a vase is 10 1/2 inches tall, and you discover it is 10 3/8
tall, a refund will not be granted.

 Damaged Items:  If your item is damaged in shipping, the
shipper is responsible, but we will assist you with the claim process.  Examine the shipping box presented to you by
the carrier and if damaged then before you sign the confirmation, open the box
in the carrier's presence and check for damages immediately.  It the item is damaged then refuse the
shipment and file a claim with the carrier. 
If you are not present when the carrier brings the shipping box to your
door, then you will need to save the box and packing materials to show the
shipper. This is the proof that they require, so if you discard the packing
materials, your claim may be denied. 
Shippers do not accept parcels packed in damaged boxes as a rule, so
damage is normally evidenced by damage to the box.
