Who makes this pipe?

I came across this pipe while perusing SP's website today. Unfortunately, it's already been purchased from the Estates section; thus, I have no idea who the maker is. Any ideas?

It is indeed a beauty of a pipe!

You can rightclick on the image and open in new tab and it'll give some info,
you'll notice the stock # 004-002-12808 embedded in the addy,
type that # in the SP searchbar,
and it gives you:

It was probably quite pricey being that it was unsmoked and SP's estate Dunnies are usually priced in the upper margins,
but man that is a seriously cool pipe!
I don't usually go for stuff over 5 inches long these days but there'd most certainly be an exception for that thing,
17 grams!
And it looks like a Virginia machine too with that stack and narrow 17mm bowl.

As it happens, I just received an email about a deal on similar pipes at Pipes and CIgars. They're selling churchwarden dublins for $28. The pipes they have are about a half inch longer than the one you pictured (per the spec indicated in Cleon's post anyway).

You know, I thought it was a Dunhill when I first saw it. I've never wanted to own a Dunhill, but that one sure was pretty.

Those pipes look very French to me. I like that look very much.

Dunhill makes a similar one but with a pot sized bowl that I like very much.

Not a bad shape. The two I posted above are Dunhill 5412's.
