Grandads Pipe by MayEbony Grandads Pipe by MayEbony
In memory of my incredibly wonderful Grandfather. This was one of the 51 pipes in his collection, but more important than that, it reminds me of him. He was born in 1910, before cars (automobiles) were seen on the roads, and lived until 2003, long after man had walked on the moon. He always said how honoured he was to have seen these things!
He took this photo of me at his camera club in 1971 and gave me a love of photography
I really value every comment, :iconstarhugplz:, :+devwatch: and :iconfeatureplz: I can no longer thank everyone for Faves individually, but please know that I'm grateful and very happy to receive them, they mean a lot.

S**VENI**
The first 2 missing letters are obliterated by a repair, but the 2nd of those 2 could be a U or an O. I can see from about 2 o'clock to about 7 o'clock of an oval shape. The final 2 **s are worn away. The first is possibly an F and the 2nd (if there is one) - just judging by the centred text there may possibly be - is worn away.
I don't think there's writing on the bottom of it, but it's in my spare room with 2 sleeping grandsons so I'll have to look tomorrow. There is no writing on the other side.

Thanks so much Maria yes, Grandad and one Uncle and Aunt were the beautiful, treasured and loving influences in my life. To say they were deeply treasured is the understatement of the century!

Thank you so much Jessica, it means such a lot to me. Particularly as the other 50 pipes have been lost to the family. Half were stolen from one of my brothers and the other brother sold his :iconchibispainplz: Just as well Grandad had an odd number and allowed me to choose one before he split the rest between my brothers :(
