beekeeper replied to beekeeper's topic in 1893, Chicago, United States - World's Columbian ExpositionThanks for the information. Any educated guesses at what type of wood this might be? It's very light. I've heard briar and mesquite but neither were certain. I realize it's difficult to identify based solely on the photos but perhaps someone will recognize it.
I think some may find interest in my pipe. The pipe was purchased at the First U.S. World's Fair, Columbian Exposition, Chicago, IL, 1893. This is identified on the bottom of the neck with India Ink. In the form of an Indian Chief, his nose holds a Stanhope featuring six photos of Niagara Falls, NY. I'm looking for any additional information about this pipe. You can visit my Web page with 10 photos for details. -beekeeper
