Buescher's Industries was founded in 1939 in Washington (MO) and was probably a subsidiary of Missouri Meerschaum Co. (M.M.) because George Buescher was elected chairman of M.M. in 1941. The factory at Walnut and Eighth Streets produced corn cob (~15000 pipes/day), Hickory and Cherrywood pipes. It closed down in early 1990s.

Radio

The shank of this early pipe is made of corncob instead of pine.

The bowl is not stained: the pipe has a burnished finish which comes from a soft piece of wood stuck against the spinning bowl until the friction left an attractive dark finish. This technic isn't in use anymore nowadays (2012).

Sticker variants under the bowl

Early markings. Sticker cutted out by hand.
