Old German Clay Pipe #RSL
This clay pipe comes with an angled shank and curved ebonite stem. Made using original molds that were discovered in 2017, these pipes are true collectors items. The original 1930s metal wind cover comes attached to the bowl. The stem has a cork fitting to ensure it rests nice and snug in the shank of the clay bowl. One extra cork is included.
