Not from Missouri Meerschaum but I do believe they absorbed this company at some point. From National Pipe Works (NPW logo) of Missouri is his ca 1910 Corn Cob Bowl with hard rubber stem with rolled chrome plated cover to mate to the bowl. Keeping it smokey with Comoy Cask 7 Single Roll Slice.

They seemed to have more interesting cobs back then. Plus it looks just a touch upscale. Am I wrong, or does that cob not have any plaster on the exterior?

Richard,
No plaster, it appears they kiln dried the husks and then used some sort of rough brush to clean the kernels and soft material behind and between them then lightly torched where the kernels had been, lots of steps for pipes that probably sold for $8 or less for a gross lot!

Interesting look for a cob. I like it.

Yes, I've seen one of Mark Twain's invoices somewhere, reflecting that price.

Reminds me a bit of those pipes made by that guy who used a natural stone-like material that was very light in weight. I forget the name of them, but the shaping he used is very much like this one. In any case i like it!


Cheers,

RR
