Mr. kenju is a pipe smoker, and a devotee of Sherlock Holmes. He has collected pipe paraphernalia and related stuff for years.
These are for Jennifer at Open Book, who has declared herself to be a lover of all things Sherlock, as well.
The statue on the top was made by Tom Clark, an artist working with Cairn Studio in Davidson, NC. Tom has made hundreds of statuettes, mainly of gnomes and sprites, with the occasional literary figure or famous person. I am posting this from Picasa, so I can't get the link in here for you, but if you are interested, Google Tom Clark and see all his wonderful works. This is another of my collections, and someday I will show you those.
Below is a humidor - used for storing pipe tobacco - the head of Sherlock Holmes. I gave it to mr. kenju for Christmas many years ago. His hat comes off, revealing the storage area inside.
