A Pair of Manhattan Pipe Advertisements


Blog by Steve Laug

Over the years I have collected Manhattan Pipes. I think I have 4-5 of them in my collection. They are well made and have a lot of charm to them. The shaping and finishing is almost European in its craftsmanship. Some of the pipes have Bakelite stems and some have vulcanite but all are good smoking pipes. When these leaflets were posted on the Pipe Club of Brasil Facebook Group by Victor C. Naddeo who is the Administrator of that group I snagged a copy of them. They provide some of the background history that is hard to find on these pipes so I wanted to preserve it on rebornpipes. The advertisement and the shape chart are great additions to my historical documents section on the blog. I enjoy reading the descriptions that are used in these old pipe advertisement pieces. The descriptions and prices take me back in time and give me a surge of nostalgia. Thank you Victor for posting this and the other booklets that you have been sharing. I am really enjoying the current batch of posts that you are putting on the Pipe Club Brasil Group. I invite others to check out the group on Facebook.
