I so admire you guys who restore and reuse the  50 plus year old pipes. Wish I had one.

That is sweet ! Even the paper cap survived. Nice score.

Thanks
I added that ( foil plug) from another Yello Bole Imperial i picked up NOS some time back. I just added it for the pictures.


Nonetheless, that is still one sweet billiard. The billiard will always be one of my favorite shapes. Something about the elegance of simplicity, form and function.

Could not agree more on classic billiards Dave.

Thanks everyone for the kind comments on the Yello Bole. I have been smoking it a lot the last couple of days and man does it smoke great!
The quality feel of the pipe is prolly the best of any Yello-Bole I have ever had in my hand.
This was the most I have ever payed for a Yello Bole and worth every penny.
