Former Danish Egg #21884EG
A group 6 in size, and in exc. cond., with an open draw.  
Consider that this shape is by its nature one of the most
comfortable of fits, and the addition of a sandblast texture only
enhances the experience.  I like it that Former has never
succumbed to patronizing his clients with a grading system,
showing that he respects their ability to discern quality without
requiring the hand-holding of grades.  Vulcanite stem.  Used.
5.65" long.  Weight: 1 7/8 oz., 53 grams. $950.

Jørn Larsen #218178BK
4.7" long, bowl 1.95" tall.  Weight: 2 1/8 oz., 61 grams.
$395.Another beautiful shape from Jørn Larsen.  Can we agree
that this shank shape is a signature design of Jørn's?  The
bowl, a
Brandy, is super comfortable in the hand and the brindle stem
beautifully complements the dark stain.  The draw is open.  Be-
cause of the bowl shape, overall I'd say it's a Grp. 5 in size, but
the chamber capacity is probably closer to a Grp. 4.  All pipes
catch my wandering eyes, but this combination does so more
than most.  I think it's beautiful.  Vulcanite stem.  New.
4.7" long, bowl 1.95" tall.  Weight: 2 1/8 oz., 61 grams. $395.
Nording Grade 1 #424130GL (SOLD 11/1/18)
Not a lot to say here because the pipe is unsmoked.  The draw
is open, the stem is vulcanite, the grain is solid, if not
spectacular & it's a Grp. 6 size.  New.
5.45" long, bowl 1.9" tall.  Weight: 1 7/8 oz., 54 grams. $75.
S. Bang by Ulf Noltensmeier #823-49
Beautifully balanced carving job, with all the right notes being
struck by Ulf.  So, although it's fairly large (a Grp. 6) it doesn't
give that impression at all.  The draw is open, the drilling spot
on and the grain is good all around the bowl.  The hand-cut
stem is vulcanite, for comfort and the pipe is unsmoked.  
5.5" long, bowl 1.75" tall.  Weight: 1 7/8 oz., 52 grams. $2950.
Jorgen L "H" #821198ME
Is this a quintessential Cognac?  I think so, and by one of the
3 finest 'purist' pipe makers of all time, IMO.  The grain is good
all around the bowl (and only the poor photo reproduction of
the bowl front prevents me from showing it) and the cond. of
the pipe is excellent.  It's a Grp. 5 size, with a flat, comfortable
vulcanite stem. Tight grain on top, Bird's Eye on the bottom.
5.55" long, bowl 1.85" tall.  Weight: 1.5 oz., 45 grams. $425.
Tabago from Denmark #424173AG
There is now a Norwegian Tabago, but this pipe was made in
Denmark by Torben Hetler, who also made the Torben Dansk
line.  The Tabago line was produced in the early 70s.  This one
is in exc. cond., with a vulcanite stem & open draw.  Despite the
deep bend, the construction is good enough for the pipe to
take a cleaner to the bottom of the chamber.  Grp. 4 size. Used.
5" long, bowl 2.45" tall.  Weight: 1.25 oz., 36 grams. $75.
Joao Reis #112030RG
This pipe appears to be strongly influenced by both Tom Eltang
and Bo Nordh.  The consignor stated that Reis worked with
Nordh and we know he moved from Portugal to live in Denmark.
This beautiful piece is unsmoked, has an open draw and is well
constructed with the draft opening right at the bottom of the
bowl.  Although it is not a big pipe, the chamber capacity will
provide for a smoke that is at least average in lenght and
probably longer.  
5 1/4" long, bowl 2" tall.  Weight: 1 1/2 oz., 43 grams. $1145
Jorgen L #623-109SR
It's a nice horn when you don't have to worry about embers from
the chamber spilling onto your pants.  It's even better when the
carver is as skilled as Jorgen and gives you what seems like
acres of Bird's Eye and cross grain.  The draw is open, the stem
is vulcanite brindle 7 while it's hard to determine
size for this shape, it qualifies as a Grp. 5.  The grade is D.
5.8" long.  Weight: 1.75 oz., 49 grams. Unsmoked.  $595
S. Bang #42454
Grp 4 in size, but tending to the smaller end of that category.  
The cond. is very good, with just a bit of tooth chatter on the
stem top & bottom (and probably easily polished off).  All else is
sharp & clean.  The draw is wide-open and the vulcanite stem
is very comfortable.  Good ring grain, too.  Used.
5" long, bowl 1.7" tall.  Weight: 1 3/8 oz., 39 grams. $425.
Søren #227236KM  (RESERVED)
No question, this is an impressive piece of briar.  The flame
grain fills up both sides of the bowl & there is plenty of bowl to
fill.  This is just short of being a massive pipe.  Certainly my
thumb fits easily into the chamber, and the wall at the front of
the bowl is over 1" thick, although as you can see, the bowl
becomes concave as it goes down to the bottom of the bowl.
The draw is open and a cleaner goes easily through to the
chamber.  The stem is vulcanite.  Søren was made in Denmark.
6.5" long, bowl 2.9" tall.  Weight: 3 3/8 oz., 96 grams. $75.
Søren Eric Andersen (SEA) #1112-187
This is something completely different and the carving
represents a tobacco leaf.  You can see this pipe on page 177
of Jan Andersson's fabulous book "Scandinavian Pipemakers."
It's full of biographies and color photographs of pipes you'll
covet.  Well, one of them is here.  It's large, a Grp. 7 in size, I'd
say, with an open draw and an inset ring in the shank.  New.
6.75" long.  Weight: 3 oz., 86 grams. $1195.
Poul Winslow #82196
This is stamped with a "C" which I presume means a grade.
It's not necessary...we can see the straight grain below the
beads 7 the mixed Birds Eye grain above them.  The cond. is
exc., and the draw is open.  It's not a small pipe, but it's not
large, either...maybe a large Grp. 4 size.  If the stem is
vulcanite, which it appears to be, it is not oxidizing, so I might
be wrong about the material.  The trim material is definitely a
plastic.  Used.
5.1" long, bowl 1.75" tall.  Weight: 1 7/8 oz., 52 grams. $175.
Jorgen L Grade E #89-3032JJ
Somewhere in this whole, wide world there must be someone
with an insatiable curiosity as to how different tobaccos taste
and research projects are nearly endless, and this is the pipe
with which to exercise that curiosity.  By twisting the ring
between the shank and the bowl and lining up the dots, one can
smoke from the chamber on the left, the one on the right or both
at the same time.  How curious are you?
6.3" long, bowl 2.4" tall.  Weight: 3.5 oz., 99 grams. $2400.
Kjeld sorensen (Red Hat) #615-283JJ
This is definitely a sculpture, with a different looking pipe each
time you turn it and see it from a different perspective.  I sup-
pose you would call it a Blowfish, but that tells only a small part
of the story here.  It's not big; maybe a Grp. 4.5 in size, but
there is a lot going on, including fine Bird's Eye on one side.
5.4" long, bowl 1.8" tall.  Weight: 2 oz., 58 grams. Price: $445.
Jorgen L #111206
That straight grain goes all around the bowl & a pipe cleaner
goes right through to the chamber bottom.  The draw is open,
is bone.  the cond. is exc.  Despite the pipe's generally large
more than 1/2."  Used.
6 1/8" long, bowl  2" tall.  Weight: 2 1/8 oz., 60 grams. $345.
Lasse Skovgaard #331307CO (SOLD 7/6/18)
A grp. 6 in size, with a wide-open draw, but really, the attraction
is the great ring-grain blast.  It's just a beautiful pipe, well
constructed and appealingly proportioned.  The flat,
comfortable stem adds to the elements that are going to make
this pipe, for someone, a very valued part of the rotation.  It's
got "favorite" written all over it.  That's my take, anyway.  New.
5.25" long, bowl 2" tall.  Weight: 2 3/8 oz., 67 grams. $450.
Nording Hand Made #821257CO
Grp 5 size, with a chamber into which I can fit my thumb.  A
Nording band and the silver Nording "N" on the stem add to the
pipe's looks and the 'near-new' condition adds to its value.  
Actually, I'm not sure it's ever been smoked, but I'll call it used.
6" long, bowl 1.9" tall.  Weight: 2 oz., 58 grams. $75.
Karl Erik #821299  SOLD 11/16/18)
For a freehand, this upright pipe comes off as particularly hand-
some, despite the detraction of the two carved spots.  The stem,
which does have a small indent on the top, is narrow & thus
comfortable, by my standard.  The draw is open & the wide
chamber can take my thumb, albeit tightly.  Grp. 6 or 7 size.
5.95" long, bowl 1.5" tall.  Weight: 2 1/8 oz., 62 grams. $45.
Stanwell's P&T Pipe of the Year 2002 42411RF
I looked up P&T"s POYs, and you can contact the magazine &
purchase any of the years you might want...except for 2002.  
This model is 'sold out.'  Well, not entirely...one is right here for
you and it will only cost you money, and as we all know, money
these days is worth nothing.  Certainly not as much as a
beautiful pipe.  This one was designed for P&T by Jess
Chonowitsch.  Grp. 5 size, & unsmoked & at a bargain.  New.
5.55" long.  Weight: 1 7/8 oz., 54 grams. $445
Tonni Nielsen #42434RF
As I've oft said, & as this confirms, when Tonni is on his game,
he is as good, as creative & as artistic as any maker out there.
The stem is brindle, in case it doesn't come through.  The draw
is wide open and all the lines flow just the way a sculpture
should...& this is a fully functional sculpture.  Grp. 5 size. New.
5.9" long, bowl 2" tall.  Weight: 1.75 oz., 49 grams. $650.
S. Bang Pipe 15148 #121182  (SOLD 10/22/18)
Pedigree makes a difference.  Photographs, certainly my
photographs, do not come close to doing this pipe justice.  It is
a Grp. 3 in size, and is an exceptional little piece, in terms of
grain (note the Bird's Eye on the bottom of the shank & bowl
and the straight grain on the sides of the shank), construction,
stem work, stain, wax, and hand feel.  Ebonite stem.  New.
4.9" long, bowl 1.55" tall.  Weight: 1.5 oz., 41 grams. $2975.
Jørn Larsen #821177  (SOLD 9/26/18)
This pipe is stamped with the UpTown label, thus making it a
piece done when Jørn was working under the tutelage of Jess
Chonowitsch.  If there weren't a touch of carbon residue on the
rim, I might want to call this pipe unsmoked.  It is near-new.  The
draw is open, it takes a cleaner (I had to twist it, but it's a
crooked cleaner, having provided lots of these tests) and the
brindle stem is ebonite.  It's all ring grain, too.  Used (barely).
5.25" long, bowl 2.15" tall.  Weight: 2.25 oz., 63 grams. $225.
Ben Wade 100 #227241KM
This has an open draw, takes a cleaner through to the
chamber bottom and sports flame grain and Bird's Eye in a
moderately sized Freehand (by which I mean, it's either a large
Grp 5 or a small Grp 6).  The condition is very good, with no
marks on the stem and only carbon residue on the inner rim of
the bowl, but no charring or wear.  Vulcanite stem.  Used.
6.5" long, bowl 2" tall.  Weight: 2 oz., 55 grams. $45.
Jorgen Larsen #1214249ME
Over the 3 stages of his career (first as Jorgen L, then allowing
Peter Stokkebye to name the pipes, and then after Peter died
as Jorgen L under our auspices as importers/distributors) here
is an "I" (as in eye...I think.  Or maybe it's an "L."  Who cares?)
and that puts it in the approx middle of all of his systems, so
again, it doesn't matter.  It's in exc. cond., with an open draw
and his pipes smoke great.  What else you need?
6" long, bowl 1.7" tall.  Weight: 1.25 oz., 36 grams.  Used. $195.
S. Bang #82101BB
Smoked maybe once, so to say it's in excellent condition is an
understatement.  It's a compact pipe, but not small.  Grp 4 size
would be an accurate depiction, with a deep chamber.  The
draw is open & the stem is ebonite.  It is graded 9.  Used.
5.2" long, bowl 1.9" tall.  Weight: 1 3/8 oz., 40 grams. $750.
Erik Nording Churchwarden 1224372
I didn't feel I could get a decent shot of the entire pipe.  Suffice
to say that it is 10.5" long.  The draw is open, so despite the
briar that doesn't need dark stain in order to cover up flaws.
The stem is vulcanite and the pipe is new.  
10.5" long, bowl 1.6" tall.  Weight: 2 1/8 oz., 61 grams. $65.
S. Bang Pipe 15127 #122495
Easily a Grp. 6 in size, but with walls so thick that the chamber
size is not that large.  Still, it is hard to argue with the thick walls
when the rim exhibits such marvelous Bird's Eye grain.  The
straight grain all around is not bad, either.  Of course the con-
struction is great, so the draw is open.  Vulcanite stem.  New.
5.7" long, bowl 2" tall.  Weight: 2 5/8 oz., 73 grams. $2865
Ben Wade  Hand Made 100 #821289 (SOLD 11/1/18)
The chamber provides a lot of capacity, and the pipe is light for
its size, but there is ample briar in the bowl.  The hundreds
series indicated straight grain briar and this pipe complies, plus
the cond. is very good, with very minor chatter on the stem. The
air hole is at the bottom of the chamber.  Used.
6" long, bowl 2.35" tall.  Weight: 2 3/8 oz., 68 grams. $65.
Jorgen L "C" #821203ME
This doesn't look like a strange or complicated shape, does it?
Yes, can you think of a single other example of it?  I can't and
certainly not anyone who isn't a Danish pipe maker.  If I"m wrong
you can let me know.  It's a Grp. 4 in exc. cond., with a lot of
straight grain, as almost all of Jorgen Larsen's pipes have. Used
6" long, bowl 2" tall.  Weight: 1.5 oz., 42 grams. $385.
Vollmer & Nilsson #623011
Beauty is in the eye of the beholder & in this case, it's also in
my eyes.  Your personal taste will dictate how you feel about
this "Ball" from V&N. The shank is fairly thin (but not pencil
shanked) & fairly short, but the bowl is  a Grp. 6 & my thumb fits
into the chamber.  The draw is wide open & it is uncoated. New.
5" long, bowl 1.8" tall.  Weight: 2 oz., 55 grams. $525.
Svend Bang A by U.N. #424-067
Certainly at least a Grp. 6 in size, with a wide-open draw and a
draw hole on the bottom of the chamber.  And, with a bit of a
twist, the cleaner goes all the way through to that chamber.  
The stem is vulcanite and the pipe is unsmoked .  New.
5.6" long, bowl 2.3" tall.  Weight: 2 3/8 oz., 69 grams. $2450.
Jorn Larsen #823-42
A simple, classic, always comfortable shape from one of the top
Danish makers at a very reasonable price.  Better yet, the draw
is wide-open and a pipe cleaner passes easily through to the
chamber bottom.  It's a Gpr. 5 in size & the stem is vulcanite.  
The band is not hallmarked or stamped, but it has the patina of
sterling and I can hardly imagine Jorn would use a lesser
material for one of his pipes.  Unsmoked.
5.8" long, bowl 2.1" tall.  Weight: 1 7/8 oz., 54 grams. $225.
S. Bang by Per Hansen #1112-292CO
A Group 5 in size, with the kind of winning blast most U.S. pipe
collectors prefer, deep, somewhat sharp and ring grained.  The
draw and construction are as you would expect from a Bang &
a cleaner goes right to the chamber.  I don't know the inspiration
for the stain color they use on blasts, when they're not using
black, but I like it.  The hand cut stem is flat & comfortable. New.
5.3" long, bowl 1.75" tall.  Weight: 1.75 oz., 51 grams. $1045.
Former #111232
again Former's brilliance at pipe carving.  It's not that small; it's
a Grp. 4 or even 5 in overall size, although the amount of briar
used for the bowl enforces a small tobacco chamber.  The cond.
is near-new and the stem is vulcanite.  Used.
5.2" long, bowl 1.6" tall.  Weight: 1 7/8 oz., 54 grams. $850.
Former # 21899EG
could get it on the page with the other Formers that came in.
The pipe is in exc. cond., but I need to polish and buff the stem
so that it shines like new.  Easily done, but not in time for this
picture.  My apology.  Fine cross grain & Bird's Eye in a large
(Grp. 6 size) pipe.  Talking about that stem, BTW, it is vulcanite,
flat and narrow.  In other words, very comfortable.  Used.
6.5" long, bowl 2.15" tall.  Weight: 2 1/8 oz., 59 grams. $795.
Former #218104EG
It's uncommon to see an acrylic stem on a top end Danish pipe,
but in this case, we have one.  The pipe is a Grp.4 size, in
excellent condition with a reddish & black stain that dramatically
sets off the complex set of grain patterns that adorn the bowl.
.5.5" long, bowl 1.95" tall.  Weight: 1 3/8 oz., 39 grams. $795.
Former #218109EG
One of the many mysteries of pipe making, at least to me, is
how does a pipe maker, with as varied a skill set as Former,
Former can make any shape he wants, and have it be one of
the best examples of that shape ever.  So, here, he chose to
make a version of the Danish Free Hand.  Why?  Because he
wanted to use as much of this fabulous briar block as possible?
Look at the grain...it is Grp. 6 or even a 7 and the ring grain
runs all around the bowl from top to bottom.  And in this way, he
managed also to keep the plateau, telling the customer that this
pipe came from the best part of the burl.  The cond. is exc., the
draw is wide-open and the stem is acrylic.  It won't oxidize. Used.
6" long, bowl 2.3" tall.  Weight: 2.25 oz., 63 grams. $835.
Preben Holm Regal #227263KM (SOLD 9/17/18)
With all of its sculpted features, and miles of tight straight gain
you could make this the poster boy for what a high grade
Preben Holm pipe is.  It's quite large (look at dimensions below)
with a wide-open draw and a very comfortable vulcanite stem,
which is lost to the fact that this is too large a pipe to hang from
your mouth.  I don't know if the stem is original. Used.
6.5" long, bowl 2.4" tall.  Weight: 2 5/8 oz., 74 grams. $95.
S. Bang by Per Hansen #218206BK
This pipe was smoked, I'm guessing, but is in near-new
condition.  It's a Grp. 5 in size and to me, it's a signature shape
of S. Bang, or maybe just Per.  Besides his initials, it is also
stamped with an "A" and the band has a sterling hallmark. The
draw is wide-open & the hand-cut stem is vulcanite.  Used.
5.15" long, bowl 1.85" tall.  Weight: 1.5 oz., 43 grams. $1445.
Former #108111  (SOLD 7/1/18)
Just another example of Former's genius as a pipe maker.  The
blast is a marvelous ring grain from the top to the bottom of this
tall bowl.  The "S" curve is graceful & deep, but it doesn't keep
Former's construction from allowing a cleaner to pass easily into
the bottom of the chamber.  The draw is, of course, wide-open.
It's large, a Grp. 7 in size.  The cond. is excellent.  Used (barely)
5.8" long, bowl 2.55" tall.  Weight: 2 oz., 56 grams. $850.
Vollmer & Nilsson #62368
The pipe is short, but the bowl is Grp.4 size, and the draw is
wide-open with an exceedingly comfortable, flat hand-cut stem.
The trim, under a strong lens, appears to be bone.  It is not
plastic.  Look at the straight grain blast on both sides of the
bowl, and then revel in the fact that the pipe is another great
product from Anders & Martin, purists in a most
unself-absorbed way.  Just truly dedicated.  New.
4.65" long, bowl 2" tall.  Weight: 1.5 oz., 44 grams. $495.
S. Bang by Per Hansen #218279BK
If the purpose of this shape is to take advantage of great cross
grain and Bird's Eye, Per has done it here.  The sides of the
pipe, including the shank, make a great display for the cross
grain while the bottom and front of the bowl provide fascination
for the Bird's Eye lover (which includes me).  It's not a large
pipe, probably a Group 4 tobacco chamber & it defies the
standard problem of this shape by being comfortable in the
hand and in the mouth.  The draw is wide-open and the
condition is excellent, it having been barely smoked.  Used.
5.4" long.  Weight: 1 3/8 oz., 38 grams. $1225..
W.O. Larsen Select #11704FT
If this didn't have one tiny fill, it would be either a Pearl or a 10.
The cross grain & Bird's Eye grain makes this briar major eye
candy.  Plus, it's also very large, as in a Grp. 7 size.  The draw
is open and the stem is vulcanite.  It is unsmoked.  New.
6.75" long, bowl 2.25" tall.  Weight: 2 1/8 oz., 62 grams. $150.
Stanwell #42439
Firstly, the only nomenclature is on the silver ferrule, so I don't
know if this pipe was made in Denmark or Italy.  BUT...the
damned diamond shaped silver ferrule was glued just a bit
misaligned, if that tells you anything.  (It looks like
somebody...not me, tried with pliers to re-align that ferrule).  It's
in exc. cond., has an open draw and is Grp. 4 size.  It's not a
real spigot as the part that goes into the shank is a vulcanite
tenon.  The stem if flat and quite comfortable.  Used.
4.9" long, bowl 1.8" tall.  Weight: 1 5/8 oz., 46 grams. $50.
 
 
 
 
Nording Hand Made #821252CO  (RESERVED)
One of those always-comfortable-to-hold shapes in a Grp. 5
size with open draw and in excellent condition.  Handsome briar
shank trim.  It can take a 9mm filter is you choose, but there is
no need to either use one or not use one.  Used.
5.6" long, bowl 1.75" tall.  Weight: 1.5 oz., 43 grams. $65.
Jorgen L (Larsen) Grade J #51854FT (SOLD)
Dwelling for a moment in the realm of idle speculation, do you
make an unbroken skein of the easiest, yet rarest of pipes,
perfect, unflawed straight grain Billiards, would do that or would
he/she feel a need to make a variety of shapes, regardless of
the fact that to do so would mean the creation of less
well-grained pieces?  Don't know why looking at this pipe set off
those thoughts.  Anyhow, this is not a Billiard but it is very
well grained, all around, and the bowl is large enough so that
my thumb fits easily into the chamber (an RCH shy of 9/10"
diameter) despite a chamber wall thickness of well over 1/2."
The cond. is exc. & the draw is wide-open.  It is impossible to
predict how a pipe will smoke, but knowing Jorgen, and his
purist's attention to detail and briar quality, I can't imagine that
this won't be a superb smoke, and quite possibly an exceptional
one.  Vulcanite stem.  Used.  
5.25" long, bowl 1.65" tall.  Weight: 2 oz., 58 grams. $365.
Vollmer & Nilsson #62363
The ideal, unobtainable perfect pipe would be a perfect straight
grain Billiard.  That is probably the dream of every great pipe
maker.  This one is not that pipe, but look at it...it's is iconic, & I
do not use that word lightly, and I hardly use that word at all.
Interestingly, I saw this pipe's great-grandfather when lunching
with an old friend recently.  He had a 1930 Dunhill, his birth
year, that must have been the model for this by the great V&N
duo.  It's Grp. 4 size, with wide-open draw, uncoated chamber,
hand-cut stem for comfort and beautiful cross-cut & Bird's Eye.
5.3" long, bowl 1.7" tall.  Weight: 1 oz., 30 grams. New. $625.
Brakner Antique #62360
A real Canadian with a shank that is almost 4" long.  The draw
is wide-open and although this looks like a Brakner stem (I'm
guessing here) it does not have the green dot, so I have to as-
sume it's replacement.  There is that wear on the rim, but the
rest of the pipe is in great condition and the nomenclature is
clean & crisp.  The bowl/chamber is Grp. 5 size.  Used.
7.25" long, bowl 2.15" tall.  Weight: 1.75 oz., 49 grams. $75.
Nording #117140 (SOLD)
Here's the perfect pipe for the non-discriminating pipe smoker
whose prime criterion is a large pipe.  This qualifies.  The cond.
is very good, but I do believe this is a Radice stem on the pipe,
but that's OK, cause the stem fits in every way.  Of course my
thumb can fit into the chamber.  Used.
6.5" long, bowl 2.4" tall.  Weight: 3 3/8 oz., 98 grams. $35.
Stanwell #111264 (SOLD)
It appears that some of the dark stain used at the top of the
bowl and on the chamber rim got into the chamber itself, and
thus I can't be entirely certain that the pipe was unsmoked.  If
it was smoked, it must have been for the shortest period in
history.  This pipe is as close to unsmoked as possible.  But,
there is a visible flaw in the shank that justifies the use of a
repair band to prevent a serious crack, so regardless, this is
not a perfect pipe cosmetically.  As a smoking instrument, it is
100% fine.  Grp. 5 in size, with an open draw and a vulcanite
stem that is pristine.  
5.6" long, bowl 1.85" tall.  Weight: 1 3/8 oz., 38 grams. $35.
Vollmer & Nilsson #11770FT
compelled them to take as much advantage of it as possible.
Hence, you have a large, broad expanse of Bird's Eye on the
rim and an expanding Dublin shape to exhibit the straight grain
all around the bowl.  The cond. is exc., you get a vulcanite stem
an open draw & a Grp. 6 size pipe with a Grp. 5 size chamber.
6.5" long, bowl 1.9" tall.  Weight: 2 oz., 57 grams. $425
Peter Heeschen #821127EG
I don't know if this qualifies as Peter's signature shape, but it is
certainly identifiable as a Heeschen from across the room.  
Other than a little carbon residue on the rim, it is in exc. cond.,
with an open draw & a mark-free vulcanite stem.  Gpr. 5 size but
a lot of wood around a deep Grp 4 size chamber.  Used.  
5.3" long, bowl 2" tall.  Weight: 1 5/8 oz., 48 grams. $350.
S. Bang 5 #821221ME
A classic, beautiful Grp. 5 Brandy with an open draw & hand-cut
vulcanite stem.  The cond. is exc. & the straight grain goes all
around the bowl, with superb Bird's Eye covering the entire
bottom of the pipe.  Used.
5.75" long, bowl 1.7" tall.  Weight: 2 1/8 oz., 59 grams. $550.
