    straight billiard, it looks like. If you meant brand, I've no clue.

    That's a handmade billard, looks to be of the NewEngland- American variety, I think he is smoking some Va-Per... with just a hint of brandy in the air... I might be wrong, my eyes are going a little...

    That looks like a Canadian billiard, although there the shank-stem junction seems constricted into a freehand shape.
    I sure like those French fried taters. Mmm jhmm.

    it would be great in anyone could throw some light on his pipe rack... I suspect a few Dunhills where there, maybe a comoy or a charatan.

    It was the blending of Latakia and Perique that convinced Einstein light speed is relative to space and not the source of light.

    What appealed most to Einstein was the entire ritual of pipe smoking: carefully choosing from a variety of pipes and tobaccos, delicately loading the briar, puffing and tamping, and the associated contemplation. "I believe that pipe smoking contributes to a somewhat calm and objective judgment in all human affairs," he said in 1950 at age 71, when he became a lifetime member of the Montreal Pipe Smokers Club.

    In this picture you can almost see the brand name.

    Honestly, I'm surprised that he smoked out of a straight billiard pipe. It seems to me that with writing so much mathematics, physics, etc. he would want a bent pipe or freehand sitter at least.

    Just my opinion.
