PostSubject: CLAY PIPES   March 29th 2018, 5:55 pm

I thought this may be fun and interesting to you guys, I can make a short series of original items collected over a 100 year period. This will be like a class room, if you guys have something make a new topic line and we can build a collection that none of the other groups have available.

First off my family have always been collectors of goods, the wife says “hoarders” (modern term used today). In some cases this term may fit and in most cases these family collectors have spent time and money in developing collections and knowing the history of each item.

 CLAY PIPES

WE WERE REALLY LUCKY TO FINE THESE PIPES WITH EVERY OTHER HISTORY BUFF LOOKING FOR ANYTHING FROM THIS PERIOD IN OUR HISTORY. THE PRIVATE COLLECTIONS WERE UNBELIEVABLE. THE BIGGEST PROBLEM NAY WERE SELLING ALL THE AVERVAGE PIECES FOUND KEEPING THE GOOD STUFF FOR THEMSELVES OR SELLING TO LOCAL MUSEUMS.

MY FATHER WOULD TELL BE TO HOLD STILL WHEN SOMEONE WOULD ASK “ANY LUCK”. THE LESS WE SAID THE BETTER OFF WE WOULD BE, YOU NEVER KNEW WHO YOU WERE TALKING TO.  WHETHER IT WAS THE LAW OR SOMEONE WANTING TO STEAL WHAT YOU HAD JUST WORKED ALL MORNING DIGGING AND RAKING FOR. MY DAD AND HIS FRIENDS WERE ALWAYS ON THEIR GUARD.

CHARTS SHOWS WHERE FOUND - GROUP PICTURE SHOWS STYLES AND DESIGNS AVAILABLE IN CLAY PIPES FOUND IN PA, MD, DE, & IN NY STATES. COLLECTED ON PRIVATE PROPERTY WITH THE PROPERTY OWNERS PERMISSIONS.

These original clay pipes have become pretty pricey anymore, once in a great while I run across a few originals, (lots of fakes from the 70's anymore like the oxg. bowl shapes with the fancy designs).
