Countdown to Father's Day - IV


English Arts & Crafts Hand-Hammered Brass Pipe Rack with Birds and Scrolling Botanicals (LEO Design)

As we approach Father's Day, we'd like to share a few select items—perfect for that "Dad with Great Taste."  See them—and many other great gift options—in the on-line store at LEO Design.

For decades, the pipe was the classic "dad accessory."  Even those who generally do not like smoking (like me), sometimes have to admit that the smell of burning pipe tobacco could sometimes be (at least) a little pleasant.  This handsome Arts & Crafts brass pipe rack, made in England around 1900, holds five pipes.  It is decorated with hand-hammered repoussé birds and scrolling botanicals and has two rings with which one can hang it on a wall.  Even beyond its function as a pipe rack, it is beautiful as a piece of metal sculpture.  Please click on the photo above to learn more about it.
