I'm pretty sure I posted about getting this thing a while back but I never got around to posting pics. I still have a ways to go to fill it but it is a lot of fun trying to find everything I need. I will be redoing a few spots on it so that it is 2 each on kaywoodie, yello bowl and medico.


This side will be converted to Yello Bole, so far I have decided on aero grates and air controls still working on deciding the last spot.


Little undecided on this side




Crest, Double Dry and VFQ


This side is good and the novas will be switched to fine lines


The Ebony will be switched to magnums


This side is good as is.

Up next is an old medico display, 2 more jet streams and it is done


My Dr. Grabow 3 sided rotating display
For side 1 I need 1 more smooth omega and it is full


Side 2 needs 2 Dukes, 1 Silver Duke and 2 Crown Dukes


Side 3 needs 1 Royal Duke and 2 Color Dukes


2 Missouri Meerschaum displays one is just sort of generic and the other as you can see is for the Mark II I need 8 more Mark IIs to fill it but they are pretty hard to come by I have been working on this one for about 3 years now.


Here we have the Kaywoodie/Yello Bole Young Mens Pipe Dept display. When I got this one I actually had all the pipes I needed to fill it Smile


Last we have a display for the entire Dr. Grabow Duke line. I emptied it because I like the 3 sided display better, still deciding if I want to swap it off or fill it as well.


I actually have 2 more but they are downstairs so I'll head down in a bit and get some shots and have them up before the end of the day most likely. Hope you guys enjoyed this.

Where did you get these displays? Do you work in the industry? It has a nostalgic feel. I like it!

WOW!!! Wonderful collection. That's a lot of money you've got there!! Are they all "new" unsmoked? And are you going to smoke some of them? I won't be able to keep them without smoking it.

Very cool. I remember the days when every drug store had at least one of those; brings back a lot of fond memories!

Thanks for sharing. I love seeing those old displays. Have you ever seen a Grabow or Kaywoodie display that was on a tripod stand? My first pipe was from a grocery store that had a spinning display on a stand. I believe the base was a tripod.
