This listing is for a pipe case, or holder, only. There is no pipe.
It is a hard case, black in color and possibly leather. Inside, the top of the case is lined with a smooth white satin like material, the bottom is lined with a soft feather like material that is white in color. The inside is marked "Genuine Block Meerschaum, Hand Made". The outside is marked "Made in Austria". It measures six inches long.
As to the age, I really don't know as I obtained it at an estate sale. If I had to guess, I'd say probably 1940s.
CONDITION: The case closes with a firm tight click. But, it does have some issues. Namely, there are several scrapes, mainly around the opening and I assume those are from someone slipping their thumbnail in to pull it open. Also, there are a couple of small spots of rust around the hinges. There are no dents.
Buyer to pay USPS First Class Mail Parcel delivery charges of $4.99. Delivery is from Nevada.
SHIPPING COST INFO:
I do combine shipping on multiple items purchased as long as all items can safely fit into a single box. However, my web host is not set up to calculate multiple item shipping costs. At checkout, you will be charged full shipping price on each item purchased and I will refund the appropriate amount of overpayment. If you are uncomfortable with that, you can send me an email with your zip code and stating which items you'll be purchasing and I'll calculate the correct combined shipping charges and send you a custom invoice.
Also, every January the postal service increases shipping charges. This year, many price increases were a bit steep with some package categories adding as much as a dollar on to an already high shipping charge. I try to absorb some of the new charges but that's getting harder with each increase.
International shipping charges also took a tremendous leap. International shipping will now depend on the country. Buyer must contact seller for international shipping charges before making a purchase. Seller reserves the right to void any international transactions where contact has not been made prior to purchasing.
All items in my listings come from either estate or garage sales. I do not know if they came from homes where smoking or pets were present. All items are sold in the same condition as when I received them.
