The pipe smoking forum in Europe of which I am a member has commissioned a Danish pipe carver to produce a limited number of pipes – only 30 to be exact – for its members to commemorate 2011.
I purchased two recently.
The sandblasted one is numbered 28 – in Chinese it sounds like “Prosper easily” and the smooth one is numbered 8, which in Chinese sounds like “Prosperity.”
Homonyms, homonyms…how we Chinese love them!
Sure made my day!
Wonderful looking pipes, real beauties!
