Meer Lined Briars
I think everyone knows that for a time at least, Meerschaum-lined, Briar bowls were apparently pretty-popular on the pipe market.  A whole lot of pipemakers offered them.   That said, I've never looked into when this design actually began or when they started to become popular?

Anyone ever seen that information?
Do You Have To Break A Dr. Grabow Pipe In?
I had heard before that Dr. Grabow pipes were already "seasoned" so there wasn't any need to go through the process of breaking in (small bowls, then full bowls mixed with small bowls, etc.) A few years back I bought a Dr. Grabow Freehand and never went through that process and it smoked great from the first bowl.

Thanks for the info. and the full scoop on the story, Ted.
L&H Stern Pipe Company
As many others on DGCF, I have a penchant for American made pipes, especially the extinct brands.  I would like to shine a light on the often forgotten or lesser known L&H Stern pipe company. Please feel free to add any information or pictures of your LHS pipes.

Ludwig and Hugo Stern began making pipes in 1893. In 1911 they moved into the six story ...

Sorry for the delay in getting the bundles out.  I spent a good chunk of time today finishing the sorting of the goods, prepping these and packing'em up.
