Unbelievably nice find. Regardless of who made it, that was made by one of their top carvers, all of whom are well known.Bloodhound wrote: ↑Thu Feb 22, 2018 1:13 pmGooseGoose55 wrote: ↑Thu Feb 22, 2018 12:59 pmNo from here, on eBay.hugodrax wrote: ↑Thu Feb 22, 2018 11:40 am
I'm sorry to have pestered you with all the questions, Goose, but Charatan's were always a real rich man's pipe even on the aftermarket. I only own one and haven't handled many more, so I was curious to catalog that one in my mind's eye with all the details I could get. Thanks for indulging me.
The stem is the most unique part. I always knew that they weren't always double comfort stems from reading about them, but I'd never seen one. I asked about the pound symbol because I always was told that was the mark used for pipes destined for the American market.
You have a very good eye. That's a humdinger of a pipe.
