Description - Collectible Pipes by Jean Rebeyrolles

Pipes have been around about as long as human civilization itself. But it isn't only smokers who enjoy them! They come in a tremendous diversity of shapes, sizes, and colors - not to mention the variety of materials used to make them, from clay to boxwood to porcelain, from corncob to briar to meerschaum. This volume features pipes from all over the world: carved and molded in a vast array of forms, including classical models, some depicting human faces, others animals, arms, legs, shells, trains, airplanes, and a wide selection of "out-of-the ordinary" examples. Some are such amazing works of sculpture that you can almost forget their original function. This is a perfect source on the topic for all those interested in pipes, whether antique or brand new, molded or carved.
