Vintage Ad (1941): Kaywoodie Meerschaums

The $10 pipe above is an actual calabash, not just calabash-shaped. The outer bowl is from a calabash gourd, with a meerschaum insert. The insert can also be made from clay or porcelain.

By the way, $17.50 was a pretty good chunk of money to pay for a pipe in 1941. Around $250 today, adjusted for inflation.
