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.

I have a good selection of tobacco pipes. Not a large collection by any standards, but I have about sixty pipes and they are all in good condition. I keep them that way by constant care and maintenance. I polish them, ream out the bowls, draw a cognac soaked pipe cleaner through the mouthpieces once in a while and place them lovingly in their cupboard when I have finished smoking them to dry and recover. I believe in looking after my friends.
