I am fairly new to pipe smoking and am trying to find some information on a pipe I just purchased.
I recently purchased an estate pipe in very good condition. It is marked Stern #588, an umbrella over the letters SSK, “switzerland” around the neck and on the stem the letter “S” inside a circle, it is a churchwarden style. Could anyone give me some history and maybe a value of this pipe? Here is a link to see the pipe http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=270587709226&ssPageName=STRK:MEWNX:IT
I can’t seem to locate anything other than L.H. Stern from NY.I thank you for your time and response.
