Default strange Frankenpipes on Ebay

Well I guess "strange Frankenpipes" is redundant, but have you seen anything like this?

https://www.ebay.com/itm/R-G-Lawrie-....c100667.m2042

My theory is that somebody got hold of three Lawrie drone-tops and decided to try their hand at pipemaking to complete the set; the added parts are decidedly crude and have a garage-built DIY hobbyist look to them: mystery wood (painted?), poor attempt at combing, strange mount profiles etc.

On a side note, doesn't the seller own any metal polish?
