Old U of M, Old Ann Arbor: Pipes

Over the weekend, EJ had dinner at her folks' house in Grosse Pointe Park. Their neighbors stopped by and showed us these two antique pipes. One had belonged to his grandfather when he was a U of M student.

I really liked the decorations on the grandfather's pipe case.

The other had belonged to the neighbor's great uncle.

It was sold/made by the R. E. Jolly in Ann Arbor. It was amazing to see the level of craftsmanship that went into making these everyday products.
