Patent Number Sasieni Four Dot #615256
Those 4 dots came out great in the photo, but the truth is that
the top dot, in the diamond, is sort of missing, by which I mean
the dots in this case seem to be little blue/green beads that
were put in holes, and the top hole is there, of course, but not
the bead that was originally in there.  Still, it's clearly an original
stem, in marvelous condition with no tooth marks.  Further, this
pipe has that fish-tail script "Sasieni" plus a Pat. # below that.
The nomenclature is dulled by buffing, but most of it is legible &
the bowl & chamber are in very good condition.  Used.
5.45" long, bowl 1.5" tall.  Weight: 1.25 oz., 34 grams. $175.
1976 Dunhill Root 8993 (RESERVED)
Among those who like traditional shapes, who doesn't love an
Apple?  Except for a little ding on the bowl (which might well be
removable with some steaming) the pipe is in exc. cond.  The
draw is open & the hand feel is all you can hope for in an Apple.
5.5" long, bowl 1.7" tall.  Weight: 1.25 oz., 34 grams. Used. $215
Pre-Transition Barling's Make #8998
An EXEL, or Grp. 5, in size, with a shape # of 1663.  Besides the
brand name & size & shape number, there is no other stamping
on the shank, not even a country designation.  Although the
bowl & inner chamber are in very good cond., there is only the
faintest of the original crossed "Barling" logo on the stem. Used.
6" long, bowl 2" tall.  Weight: 1 5/8 oz., 47 grams. $175.
Ferndown Bark Two Star Silver Spigot #1021115BK
I think I heard that Les Woods, the maker/owner of Ferndown
retired.  Regardless, there are few enough Silver Spigots that
this is one of the few available that I saw when looking for a
price comparison.  In fact, I'm not sure I saw any that were listed
on the sites I explored.  This is Grp. 5 size, with an open draw &
to be clear, what I would consider a high button.  It is quite light
considering the amount of silver it is sporting.  Vulcanite.  New.
5.9" long, bowl 1.85" tall.  Weight: 1 5/8 oz., 46 grams. $375.
Askwith #108223 (SOLD 11/10/17)
"Askwith" is the only nomenclature, but I strongly suspect this is
from his handmade series as the shape is not common and not
likely to have been pre-turned.  It is Olivewood and aside from a
touch of carbon on the rim, it is in exc. cond.  Of course it has
an open draw as that is what Chris promotes as one of the
factors his pipes smoke so well.  I think that both the bend of
the stem & the thickness detract from the overall comfort of the
pipe (Askwith has only been making pipes since '07 & this may
have been an early model).  Hard to say what size it is 'cause of
the tall, but thin, nature of the bowl.  I'd call it a Grp. 5. Used.
5.7" long, bowl 2.4" tall.  Weight: 1 3/8 oz., 39 grams. $75.
Pulvers' Prior Briar
P.O. Box 61146
Palo Alto, CA  

(650) 965-7403
1977 Dunhill Root #518078 (RESERVED)
A group 5 in very good condition, with slight wear on the inner rim
and one tooth mark onthe bottom of the stem.  Shape # is 51091 &
the draw is wide-open and the nomenclature clear & crisp.  Used.
6 1/8" long, bowl 1.95" tall.  Weight: 1.5 oz., 43 grams. $275.
1990 Ashton 3X Sovereign #518173BK
Whatever "3X" might mean on paper, in the reality of my fist, it
means Grp. 5.  Am I imagining things, or does the Apple shape,
when done well, suggest "smoke me" more strongly than other
pipes?  This is one of Bill Taylor's beauties and will stand in
commemoration of his talents and his legacy to us.  Unsmoked.
5.8" long, bowl 1.8" tall.  Weight: 1.5 oz., 43 grams. $425.
1937 Barling's Ye Olde Wood 51800
It's nice stemwork, but it's not original stemwork, so I have no
idea how to price this gem.  The bowl is in very good cond., with
just a touch of wear on the inner rim.  The nomenclature on
both stem and silver are in exc., crisp condition.  The letter
revealing the date is a "B" and the initials of the Barling boys
are also on the silver.  It is a Grp. 4 in size, the draw is wide
open, so it should smoke great.  All that remains is for you to
find an old Barling's stem with logo somewhat intact.  Used.
5.9" long, bowl 1.75" tall.  Weight: 1.25 oz., 36 grams. $185.
Sasieni Four Dot Natural #8966JS
A Grp. 5 family era "Buckingham."  The "Natural" designation is
rare enough to have been acquired only 5 times by a collector
who had over 300 Sasienis at one time.    The cond. is very
good, with just some carbon residue on the inner making it less
than perfect.  There are some very minor dings on the bowl, as
befits a pipe of this vintage.  The stem has no more than minor
tooth chatter (to be buffed out, I'm sure). Open draw.
6" long, bowl 2" tall.  Weight: 1.75 oz., 49 grams. Used. $225.
Sasieni Four Dot Ruff Root #108146
This is a large Sasieni, designated on the shank bottom as
"King Size."  It has a good, deep character blast, with a wide-
open draw.  The chamber & rim are in exc. cond., but there is a
tooth mark on the bottom of the  vulcanite stem.  There is also
a "52GH" stamped on the shank, whatever that means. Used.
6.5" long, bowl 2.1" tall.  Weight: 1 7/8 oz., 53 grams. $175.
Barling's Make Ye Olde Wood #26753
The bowl, the rim, the chamber, the nomenclature are all in
exc. cond.  The shape # is a 3 digit 233 and the size is
stamped as EL.  It's about the size and shape of a Dunhill LB.  
The draw is wide-open, but the stem is almost assuredly new,
and the stem logo is definitely newly minted.   Vulcanite. Used
6" long, bowl 1.85" tall.  Weight: 1.5 oz., 41 grams. $225.
Hardcastle Special Deluxe #108167 (SOLD 10/23/17)
A Grp. 5 Bulldog with nice ring grain blast, although the blast is
not deep.  The draw is open and with a crimping of the end of
the pipe cleaner and a modest twist, it goes to the bottom of the
chamber.  As the band says nothing, I have to assume it is not
sterling.  On the other hand, the pipe is unsmoked.  New.
6" long, bowl 1.6" tall.  Weight: 1.75 oz., 51 grams. $45.
1967 Dunhill Shell #108313
This was (is?) a much loved pipe.  It has been smoked to the
point that the blast has been worn near-smooth by the owner's
hand, and I don't trust that this is an original stem.  The rim is
round and not worn, although it is smooth as the blast's sharp-
ness has been rubbed down.  All the nomenclature is quite clear
& it's a Grp. 4 in size.  The draw is  wide-open.  Used.
5.7" long, bowl 1.85" tall.  Weight: 1.25 oz., 35 grams. $115.
Peterson's Premier #108260
There is carbon residue on the rim, but if there is any actual
wear, it is minute.  The size is either large Grp. 3 or small 4.
There are very noticeable teeth marks on top & bottom of stem,
but none of them threaten to go through & compromise the
integrity of the stem, which has an inlaid gold "P."  Used
5.95" long, bowl 1.75" tall.  Weight: 1 1/8 oz., 31 grams. $65.
Pre-Republic Peterson's Sterling #108156 (SOLD)
You can see the wear at one part of the rim, and the nomencla-
ture is worn but all readable.  It's a Grp. 4 in size & for a P-lip
there is a pretty decent draw.  The stem is bite-mark-free.  It
sits up, and, as advertised, the band is sterling.  There is dis-
coloration on the bowl, resulting in two tones of brown. Used.
6" long, bowl 1.75" tall.  Weight: 1 3/8 oz., 39 grams. $45.
Ashton Claret LX #89185GO
The condition is 'near-new.'  This LX is like a Grp. 6 Dunhill in
size.  The draw is open 7 with a slight twist, a pipe cleaner goes
right to the bottom of the chamber.  The band is sterling, and it
comes with box and sleeve.  This is a specially commissioned
pipe. To me, the Claret is a new line for Ashton, so I don't know
how many Clarets have been made.  Used.
5.9" long, bowl 2.25" tall.  Weight: 2 3/8 oz., 69 grams. $210..
Barling Guinea Grain #11283
A touch of wear is visible at one part of the inner bowl rim,
and the logo on the stem is freshly stamped.  The "Barling"
is in script; family era Guinea Grains employ a "Barling's,"
with an apostrophe 's'.  The 4 digit shape number is 5294
so the conclusion is that this is post family production.   It
appears to be a Grp. 4 in size with a wide-open draw.  Used.
5.25" long, bowl 1.85" tall.  Weight:1oz., 27 grams. $75.
George Huybrecht London Castle #61548CO
I am more than tempted to call this a 'quaint' shape, although I
don't know what that means, although to me it means an old,
English-style shape such as produced by the Ben Wade pipes
produced in their Leeds factory, or some of the old BBBs.  This
pipe's shape is hardly represented by current pipe makers.  The
thick shank and somewhat bulbous bowl suggest a Rhodesian.
Wide-open draw, vulcanite stem & a large Grp. 4 size.  New.
5.25" long, bowl 1.7" tall.  Weight: 2 1/8 oz., 60 grams. $150.
1968 Dunhill LBS Root #21863
The carbon on the rim looks far worse in the photos, I think,
than it does in person.  There is little wear on the rim.  The
poorest part of the pipe is the buffed down nomenclature, but
even there, every letter and number is legible.  The stem is in
excellent condition, and the cross-grain is pretty good.  Used.
6.25" long, bowl 2" tall.  Weight: 2 oz., 57 grams. $265.
Dunhill Shell Shape #10882CO
The shape # is 3205, so this must have sold as a Grp. 3 in size,
but it is clearly a full-fledged 4, so right away, you're a leg up if
you get this Dunhill.  In fact, I can almost fit my thumb into the
chamber.  The year of production, stamped after the "England"
is blurry, but I'm going to guess it's a 1998.  At any rate, it's
from the '90's and is unsmoked, with the tube still in the shank.
Even with the tube in, the draw is wide-open.  Thick walls &
nice, pronounced blast, too.  New.
5.65" long, bowl 1.8" tall.  Weight: 1.25 oz., 37 grams. $315
Charatan Supreme #218270BK (SOLD)
I have to start off with a negative disclosure about this pipe
because the positives speak for themselves, which includes, but
is not limited to, the straight grain that goes all around the bowl
and does not drop off at the front (which I forgot to photograph)
as do so many straight grains.  The bad thing is that deep tooth
mark on the bottom of the original DC stem.  It does not go
through the vulcanite, but is too deep to simply sand out.  The
rest, including the nomenclature, including the "L" is all fine.
It's about a Group 6 in size, with a large tobacco chamber. Used.
6" long, bowl 1.8" tall.  Weight: 2 oz., 57 grams. $250.
1999 XX Ashton Pebble Grain #518305
XX makes this a Grp. 5 in size.  The blast is very good & the
draw is wide-open.  While the nomenclature pinpoints the date
of production as 1999, the date on the sterling ferrule says
2000.  The pipe is unsmoked.  
5.75" long, bowl 1.85" tall.  Weight: 1.5 oz., 44 grams. $375.
2000 Ashton XX Sovereign #1021126TF
Nicely darkened by someone who loved smoking this pipe, and
also cared enough about it to take very good care to keep it in
fine condition, with but a touch of wear on the inner rim of the
chamber.  The stem is bite-mark free and the draw is open.
Don't aromatics used here.  Ashtonite stem. Used.
5.65" long, bowl 1.9" tall.  Weight: 1 3/8 oz., 39 grams. $210.
1961 Dunhill Root P 3108230BK (RESERVED)
1961 is my favorite year for Dunhills, because that is the year I
first got one.  This piece enhances my bias because it has such
a nice wood tone, the kind of patina that tells me that it's going
to be a superlative smoke.  It also has superb grain, tight
straight grain below the bead and Bird's Eye above.  The stem,
alas, is a excellent job, but nonetheless, not
original.  It's a Grp. 4.  Used.
5.6" long, bowl 1.55" tall.  Weight: 1 3/8 oz., 39 grams. $225
Pre-Transition Barling's Special EXEL #101470AG
The pipe shape # is 447 and the residue of the original stem is
visible.  Also, the cond. is exc., with a very clean stem and bowl
rim.  If there is any drawback to this pipe, I think that the thick-
ness of the wall is not in proper proportion the the diameter of
the chamber.  I would guess that the pipe might thus smoke
hot.  Yet, the pipe is used and there is no hot, or dark, spots on
bowl, so one can presume it does not smoke hot.  
5.5" long, bowl 1.95" tall.  Weight: 1 3/8 oz., 39 grams. $195
BBB #89-024SR
The stamping on the band does not add up to a hallmark date,
so I don't know the exact year of this pipe, but the hole at the
end of the stem indicates a very old pipe, as does the sold
"BBB" stamped on the shank, without any other identifying info.
It is a Grp. 2 in size.  Other than the wear on the rim, the pipe is
in excellent cond.  You can see the diamond outline of the BBB
logo on the stem, but the letters have been buffed off. Used.
5" long, bowl 1.5" tall.  Weight: 1 oz., 28 grams. $135.
1995 Dunhill Amber Root Group 2 #218219BK
This seems more like a Group 3 in size to me, & to the Dunhill
template I use to judge these things, but that aside, it's a sweet
pipe, with a brindle stem, a wide-open draw and pretty good
cross grain. a flake-centric pipe?  Maybe. Unsmoked.
5.1" long, bowl 1.6" tall.  Weight: 3/4 oz., 22 grams. $415
Peterson Filter #331155PJ
As the shank is fairly thin, I was surprised to see the "filter"
name on the shank, so I took the pipe apart and the tenon can
take what appears to be a 6mm filter.  It's a Grp. 4 size with a
well open draw, esp. considering the P-lip.  Happily, this
chamber is uncoated, which might be a rarity for Peterson.  The
grain is solid all around, although the carving could be a
distraction for some.  But it looks like a good smoke.  New.
5.7" long, bowl 1.5" tall.  Weight: 1 1/8 oz., 33 grams. $65.
Patent Number Sasieni Four Dot  #218116
Old English-loving pipe fans of this site, & I like to believe they
are legion, should begin to drool a little at this old Sasieni.  The
condition is excellent, with a mark-free stem & a rim showing
very little, if any, wear.  The draw is wide-open, and because of
the necessary length for the tall bowl, I don't think the Edgeware
is a common shape.  Vulcanite stem.  Used.
5.5" long, bowl 2.3" tall.  Weight: 1 5/8 oz., 46 grams. $235.
1967 Dunhill LBS Root Briar #416169SR
The cross grain and Bird's Eye on this pipe are terrific, and the
condition of the pipe is very good, with only a little wear on the
inner rim of the chamber.  There is also a tooth mark on the
bottom of the stem.  It is a Group 4 in size, but it is still large.
5.9" long, bowl 2" tall.  Weight: 1 5/8 oz., 46 grams. $325.
Charatan Selected #111259
With a little wear visible on the inner rim, you can't say that this
is in excellent condition, but that wear can't detract from the
very solid nature of the pipe.  Let's call it substantial.  The
chamber walls are plenty thick enough for the chamber
diameter & the shank is good & strong.  It does have the Lane
"L" on it and the draw is open.  Grp. 6 in size.  Used.
5.65" long, bowl 2.15" tall.  Weight: 2 1/8 oz., 62 grams. $145.
Larrysson #89153CO
I've heard the name and I'm favorably impressed by what I see
here, but I don't know the pipe maker, and a brief internet
search didn't reveal a whole lot other than his shapes covered
a breadth of styles.  I can't even tell if he's still making pipes as
his web site reveals nothing much.  The pipe maker's name,
BTW, is Paul Hubartt, and sometimes he made pipes in Indiana
and sometimes in England.  This pipe is dated 2010 and is a
Grp. 5 in size, or a tad larger, with a wide-open draw and an
uncoated bowl & brindle stem, fairly wide but flat & comfortable.
5.7" long, bowl 1.8" tall.  Weight: 2 oz., 57 grams. New. $335.
Dunhill Shell with Silver Cap #10878CO
The shape # is 4102, indicating a Grp. 4 in size, and this so it is.
The wine cap is, of course sterling and original, with the "AD"
stamped on it, although you might need a lens to discern it.
The condition is excellent & the draw is open.  The stamping of
the year is blurry; it might be a 1990 or a 1996.  Used.
5.35" long, bowl 1.8" tall.  Weight: 1 3/8 oz., 40 grams. $375.
Royal Comoy's #33191
I forgot to photograph the other side of the bowl, but it's fine...
not as good straight grain, but certainly good flame grain & no
bald spots.  You get a view of it when I try to show the front of
the bowl in the pic on the bottom right.  It's a Grp. 4 size & as
you can see, the stem is a replacement and thus there is no "C"
on it.  The cond. is very good, if not excellent and the draw is
open. It's old enough to have "US Pat." & a number on the un-
photographed side, along with a round "Made in England" but
no "London." (buffed down, but not out).  Used.
5.5" long., bowl 1.85" tall.  Weight: 1 3/8 oz., 38 grams. $75.
Ashton LX Sovereign #102164BK
The pipe is in exc. cond., but maybe the first thing to know about it
is that the front of the bowl has much better grain than shows in
this head-on photo.  I guess it's because of reflective light.  I think
the year is 1997, but the "17" which would indicate that year is
stamped in an unusual spot on the shank, so I'm not sure. Used.
6" long, bowl 2.15" tall.  Weight: 2.75 oz., 77 grams. $350
Sasieni 8 Dot "Marlborough" #824043SF (SOLD)
The original stem and dots are in exc. cond.,  the inner rim is
slightly worn and the nomenclature is dull, but entirely legible,
including every digit of the Pat. number, the fish tail under the
Sasieni name and the quotation marks on either side of the
shape name.  Typical Grp. 4 size and wide-open draw.  Used.
5.2" long, bowl 1.75" tall.  Weight: 1 1/8 oz., 32 grams. $155.
George Huybrecht London Castle #61560CO
Again, what I would call a 'quaint' shape in a Grp. 4 sized pipe.
The draw is open & the simple nomenclature says "London
Castel" & "G. Huybrecht."  The briar is without fills & with a flat
bottom, it sits solidly.  A handsome, inexpensive piece of
British pipe making history.  Unsmoked.
5.75" long, bowl 1.65" tall.  Weight: 1.5 oz., 44 grams. $150.
Larrysson #89222FT
Made in 2009, this pipe is in exc. cond.  It hints strongly at
Charatan influence, most noticeably in its design excesses.  
Despite thick walls, the tobacco chamber is very narrow, just
over 6/10" making it difficult to fill the bowl.  Well, difficult for me
because the pipe has been smoked, although not a lot. Used.
5.6" long, bowl 1.9" tall.  Weight: 2 oz., 58 grams. $245.
2006 Dunhill Amber Root Grp. 1 #10860CO
More like a Grp. 2 in size than a Grp. 1.  It is not teeny.  Has an
AD gold band & an open draw.  It's unsmoked and the little
black on the inside of the rim is clearly an extension of the black
bowl coating.  The chamber is completely smooth & new.
5.7" long, bowl 1.45" tall.  Weight: 7/8 oz., 26 grams. $325.
BBB 7 Day Set #615276
If you were earlier, you could have gotten this set for $50.  But
that was about 80 years ago.  They are about Grp. 3 in size, at
least 3 are most definitely unsmoked & maybe none have been
smoked, which is to say that they are all in exc. cond. and many
still have their pristine metal rods still running through the stem
& shank.  The blasts are called "BBB Ripple Own Make. $1250.
1923 Dunhill Bruyere "Inner Tube" #117178PN
FYI, this pipe looks to have been very expertly restored.  
Nothing wrong with that, just bringing it to your attention.  The
nomenclature is almost all legible, the only exception being
some of the numbers of the Pat. #.  Still, the last digits are quite
clear and no year other than 1923 makes sense.  On one side
of the shank is a Capital A and Dunhill over London.  On the
other side, "Inner Tube,"  the Pat. #, ending with a /12 and then
a small, underlined 3.  It's a large Grp. 3 in size.  Used.
5.8" long, bowl 1.55" tall.  Weight: 1.25 oz., 35 grams. $450.
1980 Dunhill Bruyere #117100
Group 3, with a shape # of 3212.  Because the pipe is un-
smoked, & has a short, straight shank, there is not much to say
about it, unless it had some negatives, like a clogged draw or
couldn't take a pipe cleaner through to the chamber, neither of
which is the case.   New.
5.25" long, bowl 1.95" tall.  Weight: 1 oz. 27 grams. $325
1981 Comoy's Xmas Pipe #425200
There is a tooth indent on the bottom of the stem, but it is not
deep.  Two marks on the top of the stem are insignificant in
terms of functionality.  It's a Grp. 4 in size & while the pinch
stem is nice, the "C" is not the 3 part kind.  Used.
4.7" long, bowl 1.8" tall.  Weight: 1.5 oz., 44 grams. $50.
Charatan Selected #61560 (RESERVED)
An exceptionally clean, crisp version of a Lane era Selected,
with nomenclature on shank & stem in exc. cond.  There are
tooth indents on the top & bottom of the stem, but they're so
small and shallow that you can see, but not even feel them.  
Grp. 6 in size, with my thumb easily fitting into the chamber
(9/10" diameter).  The draw is wide-open.  Used.
6" long, bowl 2" tall.  Weight: 2.5 oz., 71 grams. $245.
Peterson's Dublin #108264 (SOLD 11/3/17)
The only nomenclature on the pipe simply describes it as a
"Petersons Dublin," but there should at least be something to
indicate its extra large size.  It's a Grp. 7 or maybe an 8,
somewhat surprising for a Peterson.  The "P" on the stem is
buffed down, but still entirely visible.  The draw is good, which is
very important for a bent pipe of this size.  The bowl rim is clean
& crisp, but there are some shallow tooth marks on the top &
bottom of the stem.  Used.
7 1/8" long, bowl 2.5" tall.  Weight: 3 oz., 84 grams. $95.
Dunhill #108318
The nomenclature is so limited there that even the brand name
isn't stamped on the bottom, or the year (although maybe it is a
1952, as there is an underlined 2, but no Pat. # or even a
country of origin.  The shape # (I think) is W56.  For sure it is a
Grp. 4, 'cause it clearly says that much.  The shank probably
had a short transition extension, like an "O" ring so that the
bamboo would fit evenly with the shank.  As it is, it's a good,
secure fit (I had it repaired) & the draw is open.  The bowl &
blast are both crisp & clean, the stem original and sharp.  Used.
5.95" long, bowl 1.85" tall.  Weight: 1.25 oz., 37 grams. $135.
Orlik Golden Contrast #615266 (SOLD 8/30/17)
Because the "Orlik" is in a straight line, and in all caps, and be-
cause the "Made in England" is also in a straight line and in all
caps, this should be a pre Cadogan (pre 1980) Orlik.  I'm not
entirely positive.  Still, it's a good, solid pipe, with touches of
that rugged, thick early English pipe style (see Leeds era
Ben Wades, or even more recent George Huybrecht pipes for
other examples of what I'm referring to).  This is as much
Rhodesian as it is Bulldog.  Notice on the photo showing the
bottom of the pipe the little white, miniature Castello logo,
implant.  Wonder what that is.  The briar is not fill-free, but they
are small and minimal.  The stem is pristine & the rim does show
a touch of wear, but not more.  Open draw.  Takes a cleaner.
5.4" long, bowl 1.65" tall.  Weight: 1.5 oz., 44 grams. $45.
Ashton LX Old Church #51893CO
Handsome & large with a silver ferrule that has both a sterling
hallmark and an "A" on it for Ashton.  The nomenclature has
something unique to me...a "JC" for Jim Craig, I'm sure.  This
is a Bill Ashton era pipe, but Jim was the working apprentice at
the time, as I understand it.  My thumb fits easily into the
chamber.  The draw is open and the pipe is unsmoked.  New.
7" long, bowl 2.25" tall.  Weight: 2 7/8 oz., 80 grams. $375
Charatan Free Hand Relief #8901
Grp. 7 in size with a great, deep blast.  The way the rim is cut, it
almost looks as though there's an insert in the chamber, but I do
not think that's the case, unless the carver decided he cut the
chamber too large and then put in a briar insert.  In any case,
the previous owner liked the pipe and smoked it a lot, yet
preserved it so that all is intact, with clear nomenclature, a  stem
without tooth marks and a "CP" that is still visible, plus the Lane
"L" logo on the shank bottom.  The draw is wide-open. Used.
6 1/8" long, bowl 2.1" tall.  Weight: 2 oz., 55 grams. $115.
Peterson's Sherlock Holmes #89129
The condition for this inexplicable favorite is excellent, the pipe
having been barely been smoked.  The band is sterling & the
draw is open.  If anyone is interested, and I hope they are, I
have an unsmoked set of the original 7 Sherlock Holmes pipes
plus the original rack.  Back to this pipe.  It's used.  
5.85" long, bowl 2.2" tall.  Weight: 1 7/8 oz., 54 grams. $95.
1926 Dunhill Shell #51899
This very early Dunhill blast is evocative of something I just can't
quite name.  It is certainly unique.  The pipe is in great condition
& if the stem isn't original (and I'm not saying it isn't) it is quite
old, as well.  The draw is open & the rim is crisp & clean.  The
nomenclature is legible, so I'm confident that 1926 is correct.
5.65" long, bowl 1.5" tall.  Weight: 7/8 oz., 24 grams. Used. $450
Sasieni Four Dot Rustic "Lombard." #615230 (SOLD 8/24)
This pipe has an exceedingly comfortable, flat stem.  The cond.
is very good throughout, with a touch of wear on the inner rim of
the bowl.  The draw is open & the carving is illustrative of the
quality that existed in these family era Sasieni models.  Used.
5.9" long, bowl 1.7" tall.  Weight: 1.25 oz.., 36 grams. $110.
Pre-Republic K&P "Dublin" #108151 (SOLD 10/24/17)
This small Squat Bulldog was made in Ireland & was given a
sterling band, albeit without a date hallmark.  It's either a large
Grp. 3 or a small Grp. 4 in size with the typically dubious draw
of a Peterson P-lip.  The chamber is in exc. cond., and what
looks like wear on the rim is mostly carbon residue, but well
ingrained, I must say.  The stem has only one tooth mark, and
that is on the P-lip's ridge, not on the flat part of the stem.  Used
5.5" long, bowl 1.5" tall.  Weight: 1 3/8 oz., 39 grams. $45.
