Knowledge Of Charatan's Make Eras?

Post by Goose55 » Wed Feb 21, 2018 1:00 pm

Wondering if someone might lend some feedback on this 2nd Lane Era Charatan's Make Freehand. I'm trying to find out what it might be really worth. There is some discussion on Pipedia that James Upshall's Barry Jones worked for Charatan during the period this pipe was made, AND that he introduced Danish style Freehands like this which may now be very rare and coveted,... but I'm a novice.

Charatans require a more expert hand than me, but I found this which might be of help.

Regardless, it's a very beautiful pipe
