    Bing Crosby's Figural Pipe. Bing Crosby has done more for the pipe than any other entertainer -- a pork pie hat, a sweater, and a pipe became his trademark, generating instant recognition among his multitude of fans. (So many of them wanted to emulate the crooner that a company called Merchant Service created and marketed a Crosby-inspired long-stem pipe). This hand-carved pipe came from Crosby's personal collection, and has a meerschaum bowl carved in the shape of a nude woman and an elegant red wooden stem. It was obviously regularly used by its owner, bearing the distinctive golden brown color of a well-smoked meerschaum. In Very Fine condition. Accompanied by COA from L.A. Prop & Wardrobe Co.
