American Estates: WDC Bakelite Lockmount Patent with Silver Band

Product Number: 004-009-5447

Old pipes are really fascinating to many of us, and this WDC pipe could be close to 100-years-old. Bakelite was an early plastic, and it was used for many things. Unlike some other pipes, which featured a threaded bone tenon, this "Lockmount" has threads cut on the Bakelite tenon. It's worn out a little over the years, meaning it twists just past center, but a thin washer of paper should square it up just fine.
