Welcome to von Erck's smoking pipe history museum.
Often he produces artisian wonders - some pieces are special enough for dedication of an entire page.
These pipes are the only 3 to be graded "AAA" to date
Asked to duplicate a very old meerschaum, this pipe is the result
Below is the first pipe that was sold from the website in 1997.
This pipe was made in 1999 and sold shortly after finishing. Last August 2007 it showed up at the NASPC show with someone from Texas, who intended to trade it for 2 hawkbills. Marek from BAC Art purchased the pipe. The bit with the pipe was not the original so Mark had me make 3 new ones. The result is below. If Marek is at a show that you attend stop by his display and see this unique piece.
This pipe was purchased for the museum at P & T Magazine. Photo courtesy of P&T magazine.
