Is the entire pipe made from Bakelite or just the stem? Do you have any pictures you can upload?

With as thin as the walls are, I'd guess it maybe had a meerschaum insert. However, it looks like it's been smoked without one. One way to maybe tell would be to see if the smoke hole enters the chamber a bit high. I would think if it does that would suggest it had an insert.

the smoke hole sits at the bottom of the bowl.

Take a look at this picture. The bakelite pipe on top looks like it has a briar insert, but the one on the bottom is harder to tell.

I am going to boston for the weekend and will be taking it to L.J. Peretti Company to ask them what they think, the insert makes a lot of sense and hopefully i can get this in working order some day.

I've seen one Bakelite pipe in person--it had a meerschaum insert, too. *shrug*
