|Bari Senior Old Briar #227112
|The first collection I bought, in 1977, and which forced me into
the pipe business (we had just bought a house and barely had
money for our mortgage...how was I going to tell my wife that I
had just spent $75 for 65 pipes? I know...I'll tell her I'm going to
sell them) contained among the Larsens, Dunhills, etc., a Bari
Senior Old Briar. I still have that pipe and still love to smoke it.
For years, Bari provided the best value in pipes, then Stanwell
and finally Bjarne. This Senior Old Briar may, or may not,
smoke like mine, but it certainly has nothing but Bird's Eye &
cross grain, right where one likes to find them on a bowl. The
size is about a Grp 6, and the cond. very good, with an open
draw. However, for what it's worth, this does not look like an
original stem. On the other hand, maybe that's why it is mark-
free. There are minor scratches on the bowl, as befits a senior.
6.5" long, bowl 2.25" tall. Weight: 1.5 oz., 43 grams. Used. $65.
