7 day pipe set

I was left my grandfathers pipe set. It is a Kaywoodie 7 day matched grain pipe set in the original display box (Leather outside silk lined and green felt surrounding pipes.)and all brand new and in perfect condition. I have taken this set to many shops and collectors and have gathered no info.

Most of those that i show it to instantly begin to badger me about selling it (which i never will). I genuinely just want information on these things. I can supply pictures if it will help.

My grandfather died in 1968 the pipes are probably 1940’s vintage. I have a picture of late 1930’s 14 day pipe set that i bought at an auction.

Thanks for any information in advance.
