Very nice pipe with beautiful artwork. In the center is the black Imperial eagle under the crown. To the right and left are the various state flags. Below is a furled banner reading "WIR DEUTSCHE FURCHTE GOTT SONST NICHTS IN DER WELT". We German fear God and nothing else in the world. Wow. Light hairline crack on the right side. This is darkened with age and there is no looseness. The metal top is age tarnished but would likely clean up quite well if so desired. The pressure clip works great and pipe is certainly usable. Could quite economically replace the bowl in a cheaper hunting motif pipe and be a really nice item. Priced well.
