This pipe use to belong to my Grandfather. The only thing I know about it is that it was hand carved in Italy and it's at least 60 years old.

If anyone knows anything about it, I would like to know. You can email my at rbarber608@epbfi.com.

    That's an interesting pipe! The face, to my eye, is a half-mask. It will be one of the characters from the Commedia dell'Arte. I have a half mask on CW here:

    I think your pipe has the face of either Arlecchino or Brighella.
