The Curio | Smoking Pipe Rosewood Display Stand
Ceci n'est pas une pipe.
The Curio is, however, a beautiful rosewood display stand that you can use to display any Shire Pipe in between uses. Add another touch of class to your British detective-inspired study, or store your wizard's churchwarden safely on your home library shelves.
This display stand has a base that's 3.15" wide and 4" long - more compact than a high fantasy trilogy box set! - and stands 4.25" tall. A concave depression in the base gently cups the pipe bowl, while the top portion of the stand secures the stem to keep the pipe upright so you can show off that special piece.
Whether you're a well-seasoned pipe enthusiast, or an enthusiastic collector of treasures, level up your collection with The Curio.

Use & Care
Follow these guidelines to get the most from your Shire Pipe.
Pack your chosen cut firmly, and aim for a moderate amount of airflow - not too tightly, not too losely. You can check this by taking a few test puffs before lighting.
Using a circular motion, carefully apply a flame over the entire surface of the material in the pipe bowl, drawing gently on the mouthpiece. Tamp down, and re-light.
Take your time. Puff gently - inhaling fully is not necessary.
Tap or gently scrape out the bowl immediately after use. Clean your pipe frequently for the best flavor experience.
Over time, a carbon deposit ("cake") will build up inside the bowl. Do not allow this layer to get thicker than 1/16" (2mm), as it could damage the bowl. Use the provided poker multi-tool to gently remove any excess carbon.
Use the included pipe cleaners to clear any build-up from the stem. Use isopropyl alcohol - not water - on a cotton swab to deal with particularly stubborn tar. Unless you are displaying it, store your pipe with the bowl facing down to allow any excess moisture to evaporate.
