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.
GBD Seventy Six #117216 (SOLD 3/1/17)
I am going to call this pipe unsmoked because I can detect no
trace of use.  However, with the very odd staining applied to the
briar, I'm not sure that fact is going to help me garner more
money for this pipe.  I don't know how it comes through in the
photos, but this pipe has a distinct green tinge to it, and I do
not think it's attractive.  Boy, I sure hope you do (although don't
expect me to call you when our home needs re-decorating). The
draw is open and it will take a thin cleaner through to the
chamber with a bit of a twist or two.  Grp. 4 in size,.You can see
the fills in the pics.  Vulcanite stem.  Unsmoked.
5.2" long, bowl 1.6" tall.  Weight: 1 7/8 oz., 54 grams. $45.

Pipe
Categories:
1977 Dunhill Root #924078
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 #924173BK
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.
1997 Dunhill Dress #218235BK
Boy, I'd love a web site full of this style pipe.  No issues to deal
with regarding the color, only one side photographed.  No
questions about fills.  Right up my alley.  This says it's a Grp. 4.
I think it's a 3.  No matter, it's a simple enough pipe upon which
to make a decision; either you want a Dress black or no.  New.
5.5" long, bowl 1.55" tall.  Weight: 1 1/8 oz., 33 grams. $450.
1937 Barling's Ye Olde Wood
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. $225.
1890 BBB #530104SR
This graceful pipe has a threaded horn tenon, which accounts
for the fact that the stem sits just a very little past perfectly
straight.  (The photo makes it seem much more severe than is
the case.)  The condition is excellent and the draw wide-open.
5.6" long, bowl 2" tall.  Weight: 1.75 oz., 48 grams. Price: $340
GBD Fantasy #1021296
The pipe is in very good condition and the stem is like new.  In
fact, maybe the stem is new because it doesn't have the GBD
plate on it, so it must be a replacement.  The stem is vulcanite
& the draw is open.  It's a Grp. 4 in size.  Used.
5.5" long, bowl 1.65" tall.  Weight: 1.5 oz., 43 grams. $25.
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.
1983 Dunhill Cumberland #824287
Grp. 5 Canadian.  The wear on the top part of the brindle stem
created more of a little "wave" than tooth marks.  There is also a
surface burn on the smooth part of the rim.  None of these flaws
compromise the pipe in any way.  It's an original Cumberland
with that smooth top.  At some point, Dunhill decided to save a
few pennies on their best-selling model and make the entire
bowl sandblast.  I don't know how long that folly lasted (I
personally asked the Gen'l. Mgr. of Dunhill pipes "what f---ing
idiot came up with that idea?"...silence followed...it was him, he
confessed.  Ah well...corporate mentality.  Used.
6" long, bowl 1.85" tall.  Weight: 1 3/8 oz., 39 grams. $165.
GBD Garland #117191  (SOLD 3/12/17)
I guess that brass band around the shank is the 'garland.'  Grp.
4 in size and in nearly-new condition.  I looked and did not see
any fills, but no guarantees on a pipe of this nature & diminished
pedigree. Wide-open draw.  Sits up.  Vulcanite stem.  Used.
5.3" long, bowl 1.7" tall.  Weight: 1.5 oz., 43 grams. $45.
Pre-Transition Barling EXEXEL #824032SF
Grp. 6 in size, and in good cond. (which I believe to be original...
I looked carefully at the button and those of old Barlings I have)
with a nice, unburnt rim.  The drawback is a nomenclature that
is visible, but quite thin, having been buffed down.  The shape #
is 789 and the draw is wide-open.  Used.
6.25" long, bowl 1.95" tall.  Weight: 1.75 oz., 51 grams. $225.
Comoy's Blue Riband #924274
The nomenclature is buffed way down, although the "Blue
Riband" is easy enough to discern.  There is no "C" on the
replacement stem, which is like-new, but major issue is, in my
opinion, with the bottom of the pipe.  There are signs of an
incipient crack on the bottom of the bowl that may mean  the
pipe burns hot there.  The inside of the chamber looks fine and
there are no dark spots on the bottom, near the line on the bowl
so most likely, all is well, but I do have my concerns.  If you get
this pipe and there is a problem, I'll most definitely cover you.
In the meantime, the draw is open and the stem is vulcanite.
5.9" long, bowl 1.6" tall.  Weight: 1.25 oz., 37 grams. Used. $45.
1985 Dunhill Collector #218015RS (SOLD 2/24/17)
If, as I read, the Collector grade's grain pattern places it just
below a DR in the Dunhill hierarchy, this should be a pretty
desirable piece, because the combination of size (about a Grp.
7) and grain (which really is quite good) should make it quite
uncommon.  Certainly, the overall quality of the briar is fine
enough to allow Dunhill to keep the light, unobstructing, Root
stain.  The condition here is excellent.  The worst thing I can
say about it is that the stem is oxidizing a little, and I can easily
take care of that and bring it back to its original luster.  Used.
6.25" long, bowl 2.5" tall.  Weight: 2.5 oz., 70 grams. $265.
GBD Collector New Era #1021301 (SOLD 3/11/17)
There are some minor dings on the rim of the bowl, but more
than that, there is a tooth indent on the bottom of the stem.  
Unless you expect to plant a sharp tooth in that dent, thereby
exacerbating it, the dent should present no problem for you.  
The draw is good and it is a Grp. 5 in size.  It does sit up. Used.
5" long, bowl 1.85" tall.  Weight: 2.25 oz., 64 grams. $75.
  1956 Dunhill 837 ODA Bruyere #218020 (SOLD 2/23/17)
 
 
  The carbon residue and the wear on the rim, you can see.  The
gap between the stem & shank has been significantly reduced.
This is simply a big, old ODA with a lot of smoking life left in it.  
The nomenclature is not crisp, but every single letter and
number are perfectly legible without need of lens aid.  There
are marks on the stem, but hardly indents.  And no aromatics
were used in the aging of this pipe.  Used.   
6 1/8" long, bowl 2.35" tall.  Weight: 2 1/8 oz., 62 grams. $225.
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.
Pre-Transition Barling's  EXEL Fossil #21825 (SOLD 2/21)
Everything about this pipe is clean & crisp, but there is no logo
on the stem, begging the question, is it original?  I don't know.
It looks like a Barling stem, but why, when all the rest of the
nomenclature is so sharp was this buffed off?  Could have been
the result of an oxidized stem.  As for smoking quality, this most
definitely should smoke like an old Barling's Make.  The draw is
certainly wide-open & the chamber has almost no odor at all.
5.85" long, bowl 1.6" tall.  Weight: 1.25 oz., 36 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.
1982 Dunhill 2 Star Dead Root #218297BK
The pipe bowl is in near-new cond.  I can't detect any sign of
use on the inner rim, for instance.  For some reason, the stem is
not in the same condition, with tooth marks on the top and most
prominently, on the bottom.  they're not deep marks and can
probably be sanded out, but they're certainly visible.  The nom-
enclature appears to have been weakly stamped in the first
instance, although everything is visible.  It's a small pipe and
possibly no larger than a Group 3 in size, or a small 4.  Used.
5.3" long, bowl 1.75" tall.  Weight: 1 oz., 29 grams. $685.
Charatan Supreme #218270BK
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 (RESERVED)
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.
Northern Briar Rox Cut Regal #218022
This is marked a Grp. 4, but it's much larger than a Dunhill Grp.
4 in size.  It's at least a 5.  The cut on this pipe is less sharp
than on the Premier listed just above.  It's a classic British
Billiard and provides Ian's superb value in his typical fashion.
6" long, bowl 2" tall.  Weight: 1 7/8 oz., 54 grams. New. $190.
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 worry...no aromatics used here.  Ashtonite stem. Used.
5.65" long, bowl 1.9" tall.  Weight: 1 3/8 oz., 39 grams. $250.
1986 Dunhill Bruyere ODA #21858
No question that the rim is scorched, but it is not badly worn.  
The rest of the pipe, including the stem, is in exc. cond., and
when this pipe says "ODA," it means it.  It is large.  For a
Bruyere, it has very good cross grain.  The ODA shape is 835
and while the nomenclature is a bit buffed down, every letter&
number is clearly legible.  Used.
6 5/8" long, bowl 2.25" tall.  Weight: 3 oz., 86 grams. $235.
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. $200
BBB #83024SR
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
Upshall A #218121JS (SOLD 3/15/17)
Among the "root quality" grades, with a light tan finish.  This
pipe is a Grp. 5 in size, and has "FH" stamped on the shank,
which indicates a hand made piece.  The draw is wide-open
and the stem has no more than a touch of tooth chatter, with
the original stem logo intact.  It's a comfortable stem, too with a
fish tail curve to the button.  Pretty clearly, this is old enough to
have been from the first generation of Upshalls.  Used.
6" long, bowl 2" tall.  Weight: 1 3/8 oz., 41 grams. $85.
Patent Number Sasieni Four Dot  #218116 (RESERVED)
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.
1996 Dunhill Cumberland #218156BK (SOLD 3/10/17)
A group 5.  After telling you that the draw is open and it takes a
cleaner to the chamber, there is not a lot of info to offer on an
unsmoked Dunhill.  If you have any questions, I'll try to answer
them, but This is simply a case of what you see is what you get
but at a very appealing price.  Unsmoked.
5.4" long, bowl 1.9" tall.  Weight: 1.5 oz., 44 grams. $450
Charatan Selected #1224323
The overall size qualifies this as a Grp. 4, but the tall, thin bowl
creates a narrow chamber, so to get the tobacco to the bottom
of that chamber, you're going to have to use your tamper.  The
grain is legitimately "Selected" quality, but the stem, which may
or may not be original does not have a visible "CP" on it.  The
nomenclature does contain the "L."  The overall cond. is very
good and the nomenclature is clear.  To a pipe whisperer, such
as myself, this briar exudes the kind of patina that portends a
fine smoke, although in truth, I only deal in latakia & pipes that
work great with Virginia will have to find their own advocates.
5.8" long, bowl 2" tall.  Weight: 1 oz., 27 grams. Used. $125.
Ferndown 2 Star Root #218201BK (SOLD 3/17/17)
Are Ferndowns hot right now, or is it just my narrow exposure to
quick sales of the pipe on my site?  Regardless, this is a quite
handsome, and probably uncommon, 8 sided Ferndown Panel.
Damn well done, too, with all sides looking to be the same
thickness to my eyes.  That's not easy to do.  The drilling is
right on the bottom of the bowl.  Only an idiot would check to
see if something this deeply bent takes a cleaner straight
through.  Well, I just tested, & it does, with the lightest of twists.
Group 6 in size & quite comfortable to hold (&  love, I'd guess).
5.25" long, bowl 2.2" tall.  Weight: 2.25 oz., 62 grams. $345.
Charatan Special #117226 (SOLD 2/15/17)
I could be convinced that this old Charatan (It has the "L" but
also has an old style tapered stem & a thin "CP" on the stem) is
unsmoked, it's in that good a condition.  It's Grp. 4 size, has an
open draw & with a slight crooking of the tip of a cleaner, the
cleaner goes easily through to the chamber.  I think this is a
classic treasure.  Indeed, my experience is that the standard
grades of old Charatans smoke better than the S.G.s anyhow.
5.55" long, bowl 1.55" tall.  Weight: 1.5 oz., 43 grams. $95.
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
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. $225.
French  GBD Speciale Standard #117231 (RESERVED)
Very good cross grain across the front and back of the bowl
(note the straight grain running across the bottom of the bowl)
and Bird's Eye on both sides of the bowl.  With its open draw
and very comfortable stem and large capacity bowl, this is a
fine pip.  Grp. 4 size.  Vulcanite stem.  Unsmoked.    
5.5" long, bowl 1.55" tall.  Weight: 1 3/8 oz., 39 grams. $95
One Star Ferndown #218284BK
This pipe is clean and crisp, certainly including the inner rim of
the tobacco chamber although there is a bit of carbon residue
on it.  That can probably be easily cleaned off, although I'm
afraid to do it on the wheel lest some stain is removed. Grp. 6..
Despite the bend, a cleaner easily goes through to the bottom.
5.95" long, bowl 2.1" tall.  Weight: 1.5 oz., 43 grams. $145
Barling #117247 (SOLD 2/25/17)
In exc. cond., with original stem logo intact and an open draw.
It's a Grp. 3 size despite shape # 4731 implying a Grp. 4 size.
It has a script "Barling" so it's not old enough for me to look it
up, although I should be able to remember enough to give you
a good idea.  Late 1960's is a good guess.  The blast is
nothing to write home about.  Vulcanite stem.  Barely used.
5.4" long, bowl 1.55 tall.  Weight: 1.25 oz., 34 grams.  $55.
Charatan's Make Authentic #527182
I like the shape of this pipe and apparently, the Charatan
people did, too because they named it (shape # 318) Jermyn,
which is the street on which they had their shop.  BTW, I do
love the individualistic names the English pipe makers gave to
their shapes.  Among Loewe & Sasieni, place names were
prevalent tried to capture the shape in their names, like the
Acorn, or Tun (a barrel).  There are tooth marks on the bottom
of the stem, but other wise the pipe is in exc. cond., but with no
"CP" logo visible on the  DC stem.  The "L" is still there.  used.
5.65" long, bowl 2.1" tall.  Weight: 1.5 oz., 43 grams. $75.
1936 Pat. Number Dunhill #822490
Such a simple pipe should not be the source of so much confu-
sion, but it is for me.  First of all, there is no designation regard-
ing Bruyere or Root finish.  The nomenclature is buffed way
down, but except for a few numbers at the beginning of the Pat.
everything is visible.  Then, The Pat. # should be, according to
Loring's book, a U.S. patent, but no "U.S." is stamped on the
shank.  Further, the patent number that is on the shank is
supposed to have been used only from 1937-1941, but the
underlined number after the "England," is pretty clearly a 16,
making the pipe, presumably, a 1936 production.  Well, if you
like mysteries, you can buy this and figure it out for yourself.
I've given you all the info I can provide.  The condition is very
good, with no tooth marks onthe stem (original?  I don't know
for sure.  It certainly is an old stem, but the dot is a bit
whiter than I might expect) & very little wear on the chamber rim.
6 1/8" long, bowl 1.75" tall.  Weight: 1.25 oz., 34 grams. $250..  
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
Willmer Belfairs #117241 (SOLD 2/14/17)
The Belfairs is not a high grade Willmer.  Their initial offerings,
in the mid-to-late 1970's, made them famous for terrific straight
grains, but how long could that hold up?  This pipe has good
cross grain on the front 7 back of the bowl, with the attendant
Bird's Eye embellishing the sides of the bowl.  The draw is open
and with just a little crimping of the tip of the cleaner, it easily
goes to the bottom of the chamber.  Like all good English
pipes, the stem is vulcanite.  Grp. 5. This pipe is unsmoked.
5.1" long, bowl 1.9" tall.  Weight: 1.5 oz., 42 grams. $75.
Pre-Transition Barling's Make EL Fossil #21830
From the collection of an old time pipe guy that I've known
since the early or mid 1980's, this sharp Prince, with a shape
number of 327, has it all.  The original stem logo is legible, if
considerably buffed down.  The draw is wide-open 7 the
nomenclature is all there to be easily read.  "EL" is often a
smallish pipe (as in the Barling I bought for myself for $5.60 in
England in '65) but this is a full Grp. 4 in size.  Used.
6" long, bowl 1.4" tall.  Weight: 1 3/8 oz., 38 grams. $325.
Dunhill Patent #117182PN
All of the nomenclature is quite legible.  The only issue is in
dating this to an exact year.  There is no number after the D in
England, so we are all reduced to Loring's guide, which gives 3
years as possibilities, 1947, 1953, `954.  You'll have to take
your pick and I choose '54 because that's the year the N.Y.
Baseball Giants swept Cleveland in the World Series.  Grp. 4, in
exc. cond., with a slight tooth mark on the top of the stem. Used
5.4" long, bowl 1.95" tall. Weight: 1 3/8 oz., 39 grams. $425.
Charatan Distinction #1224338
About as classic a Charatan freehand shape as you can hope
to find (although that does leave a lot of latitude).  The nomen-
clature is crisp and clear and although the white has been
buffed out of the stem logo, the "CP" is still there, as is the "L"
on the shank.  The cond. of bowl and stem is very good...with a
sort of scratch on the bottom of the stem, as opposed to an
indentation.  I think I can buff a good deal of it out.  It's a Grp. 5
in size & the draw is wide open.  Vulcanite stem.  Used.
6 1/8 long, bowl 1.75" tall.  Weight: 1 5/8 oz., 46 grams. $125.
GBD Collector Militaire #1224413
The cond. is very good or even excellent, with a clean & round
inner chamber rim & a stem that is bite-mark free.  That one
light spot on the bowl does look like a fill.  The size is Grp. 6.  
The draw is open and the stem is vulcanite.  Used.
6.5" long, bowl 2.15" tall.  Weight: 1 7/8 oz., 54 grams. $50.
Sasieni Fantail #117206 (SOLD 2/17/17)
This was a pleasant find.  It is a Pat. # Sasieni, and although
the Fantail was a 2nd (and there are fills) it is well and carefully
constructed and finished, with good cross grain & ample Bird's
Eye.  The fantail stem is always comfortable.  The draw is wide-
open, the bottom of the shank is flat, so the pipe sits up & the
size just right for carrying in a jacket pocket.  Grp. 3. Unsmoked.
5.35" long, bowl 1.4" tall.  Weight:7/8 oz., 25 grams. $75.
1949 Dunhill PO #21845RS (RESERVED)
I don't think you're going to find a P.O. in better condition than
this piece.  The rim is clean, the nomenclature is all there, the
bottom of the stem has the most minor of tooth chatter.  The
good character blast doesn't hurt, either.  Used.
5" long, bowl 1.4" tall.  Weight: 1 1/8 oz., 33 grams. $325.
1970 Dunhill ODA 835 Root #21869
There is some charring on the inner rim of the chamber but
nothing that jeopardizes the integrity of the bowl or tobacco
chamber.  The stem is in exc. cond., but the nomenclature is
buffed way down, although entirely legible with no letter or
numeral obliterated.  The draw is open.  Vulcanite  stem.  Used.
6.5" long, bowl 2.35" tall.  Weight: 2.5 oz., 72 grams. $235.
BBB Own Make Virgin #21889EG (SOLD 3/2/17)
I think of the Virgin grade as being light-stained, although I
suppose it more accurately refers to really clean briar.  If it is
flawless (and I certainly don't see any fills or even significant
sand spots or pits) it also has a significant amount of straight
grain.  The cond. is exc. and the draw open.  I'm afraid I can't
begin to guess at the age of this pipe, but the absence of
obvious shortcuts in construction and finish put it at a vintage
when English pipes were still preeminent.  Vulcanite stem. Used.
5.5" long, bowl 1.65" tall.  Weight: 1.5 oz., 43 grams. $85.
