Vintage Demuth Milano Pipe Holder, General Store Advertising Pipe Display Case, Pat. Dec 22,1925


This vintage Demuth Milano pipe holder is one of my favorite pieces!! And I don't smoke a pipe!!

Once a general store advertising display it held 6 pipes on a gold beige velveteen fabric with perfect molds for each pipe and an elastic to hold them in place- all of which are still intact.
The front is a thin glass display with out chips or cracks.
The top has a metal latch which opens to allows access.
There is some rubbing of the brown fabric on the edges due to use and age and can be seen in pictures
But the best part is the back!! It is instructions for the salesman...
"To the man behind the counter-
Tell your customers these reasons for the great popularity of the Demuth Milano with the Hesson Guard'
It goes on to list the reasons and has a patent date of Dec 22, 1925

It seems this was once covered up and the edges of 'the cover up' can be seen but do not interfere.
It is an awesome piece!! Great in any bar or game room or for any avid Tobacciana collector

It measures 14 1/4" x 2" x 9" with a 10 3/4" x 4" base

USPS has discontinued Regional Rate Box prices. This means that this mail class is no longer available
USPS uses Cubic Pricing rates which are determined by package dimensions and distance traveled instead of weight
