Pre-Transition Barling Fossil #722134 (Not Available)
Shape #224, based on a very clean, crisp nomenclature.  The
bowl rim is also crisp and clean.  The stem is clearly an original
Barling's stem, or a near-perfect duplicate.  But it does not
have the Barling logo onit.  It must have been buffed off...not by
me, certainly.  The blast is good, old time standard and the draw
is wide-open.  The size EXEL.  Vulcanite stem.  Used.
5.8" long, bowl 1.65" tall.  Weight: 1.25 oz., 36 grams. $275.
Ashton Sovereign LX #924013
The stamping is, like the pipe, clean and crisp and like-new.  But
the date no. after the "D" in "England" is essentially not there.
Perhaps the "17" in much larger size to the left of the
nomenclature means it's a '97.  Regardless, this large pipe may
not have been smoked, but it may have been for about 10 secs.
so I have to call it used.  Wide-open draw.  Brindle stem.
6" long, bowl 2.4" tall.  Weight: 2.75 oz., 77 grams. Used. $450.
Pulvers' Prior Briar
P.O. Box 61146
Palo Alto, CA  

(650) 965-7403
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.
Comoy's Guildhall #824252 (RESERVED)
A little small, so let's call it a Grp. 3 size, with visibly good grain
in the sandblast.  Again I can't determine the era of production,
but a guess places it in the '70's or 80's.  It has the right logo
for the Guildhall.  The draw is wide-open & it sits up.  New.
4.45" long, bowl 1.85" tall.  Weight: 1.25 oz., 34 grams. $75.
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
Charatan Free Hand Relief #527327
Aside from the attractive and deep ring grain of the blast, the
impression this pipe gives is that somebody really liked smoking
it.  That's not a rare event, but it is far from common.  In fact, I
have to ream the chamber before shipping.  I think the stem is
original as I detect a vestige of the "C," and it is a Lane era
pipe.  The cond. is very good, with minor tooth marks on the
stem and some wear on the inner rim of the chamber.  Used.
6" long, bowl 2.2" tall.  Weight: 1 5/8 oz., 47 grams. $65.
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 was him, he
confessed.  Ah well...corporate mentality.  Used.
6" long, bowl 1.85" tall.  Weight: 1 3/8 oz., 39 grams. $165.
1994 Dunhill Root #924102BK (SOLD 10/15/16)
Light stain on a Group 5, which has a wide diameter chamber.
The pipe is unsmoked, so there's not a lot one needs to say
about a brand as well known as Dunhill.  Vulcanite stem.  New.
5.8" long, bowl 1.4" tall.  Weight: 1 5/8 oz., 47 grams.  $395
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 onthe bottom of the bowl that may mean that 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. $50.
Peterson Gold Banded Supreme #92408 (SOLD 10/17/16)
If, like me, you think good cross grain patterns, with dramatic
Bird's Eye, are more interesting than boring straight grain, then
you will have no difficulty understanding why this pipe rated the
"Supreme" grade.  The cond. is very good, with just a touch of
wear on the inner chamber rim.  It is a Grp. 4 in size.  I noticed
that some Supremes have silver bands...this one is 14 K G.F.
5.3" long, bowl 1.9" tall.  Weight: 1.5 oz., 44 grams. $225.
1950 Dunhill Shell PO #72250TH (SOLD 10/17/16)
A beautifully blasted Shell in very good cond.  The
nomenclature is all readily legible, but buffed down so it's not
crisp.  The prior owner must have been tired of cleaning stems,
so the vulcanite has been replaced by an acrylic stem.  Used.
4.95" long, bowl 1.4" tall.  Weight: 1 oz., 30 grams. $250.
Dunhill LB #924233 (SOLD 10/11/16)
All the nomenclature except the word "Dunhill," and the letters
"LB" have been buffed off this pipe over its life.  Well, maybe
not, I can see the numbers "32" in the area where a Pat. No.
could be.  Regardless, there is a lot of good briar here, with a
very clean chamber.  It's going to last a long time.  I do think
that the stem is a replacement, because it's in pristine cond.
6.25" long, bowl 1.95" tall.  Weight: 2.25 oz., 63 grams. $135.
Barling's 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 5291
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.
Parker Briar Bark #824235
I don't know how old this pipe is, but this kind of pristine
condition suggests it was recently made.  However, the stem
button indicates a much older pipe to me, even the 50's.  Well,
I don't think that's practical, unless this pipe was kept in a
atmosphere-free environment.  Speculation aside, it's an
unsmoked pipe and looks like it in every single way.  The draw
is wide-open, the walls are thick and the stem narrow.  New.
5.5" long, bowl 1.9" tall.  Weight: 1.5 oz., 43 grams. $75.
1960 Dunhill Bruyere ODA 806 #924239 (SOLD 10/17/16)
With just a little wear on the bowl rim, and very minor tooth
chatter on the bottom of the stem, this pipe is in very good cond.
The nomenclature is all clear.  The draw is open & the chamber
is very clean.  This pipe has tons of life left in it.  The stem is an
F/T, or Fish Tail, and is so designated on the shank.  Used.
6 1/8" long, bowl 2" tall.  Weight: 2.25 oz., 64 grams.  $235.
Peterson's Kildare #821433
With no P-lip as an impediment, the draw here is wide-open.  
Further, the bowl is not coated with black stuff (although it does
appear to be stained).  I'd call it between a Grp. 5 & Grp. 4. New
5.75" long, bowl 1.75" tall.  Weight: 1.5 oz., 41 grams. $75.
1948 Pat. No. Dunhill Root #527119 (SOLD 10/17/16)
The size is a hair short of being an ODA, but no size is stamped
on it.  The cond. is very good, with just a touch of wear on the
inside of one part of the rim.  The stem is mark-free.  The
nomenclature is all legible, although it is buffed down.  Also, the
stem does not leave that much air between it and the shank, as
the photo above right shows.  I neglected to push it closer to
the shank and it erroneously looks like a lot of daylight between
the stem and shank.  It isn't perfect, though.  Used.
6 1/8" long, bowl 2" tall.  Weight: 1.5 oz., 43 grams. $350.
1999 XX Ashton Pebble Grain
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 #215022 (RESERVED DW)
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.
Pre-Republic Peterson #822504 (SOLD 10/3/16)
There is no grain on one side of the bowl, and a visible fill on
the front of the bowl.  A customer has discerned, with eagle
eyes, that a very thin crack is visible through one of the
windows in the band.  Clearly, that crack is not going to worsen.
Other than a little wear on the rim, this old pipe is in good cond.
5.75" long, bowl 1.85" tall.  Weight: 1 3/8 oz., 40 grams. $35.
BBB Virgin #824137 (SOLD 10/4/16)
To whom am I appealing with this pipe?  A BBB collector?  That
person likely has a pipe like this.  The newer smoker?  Probably
someone who wants a newer, hipper brand.  Yet, it's from the
best briar of a venerable and venerated old company.  The bowl
is uncompromised with coating, there are no fills.  The cross
grain & Bird's Eye will pop when the pipe is smoked and colors
a bit.  Group 4 size, wide-open draw.  Vulcanite stem.  New.
5.4" long, bowl 1.65" tall.  Weight: 1 oz., 29 grams. $125.
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.
Comoy's 1989 Christmas Pipe #37275
What, pray tell me, makes this a "Christmas" pipe?  Is it even
Christmas worthy?  Yes, I think Christ would have been a pipe
smoker.  No doubt.  But to commemorate his birthday (which
likely was not Dec. 25th, but that's a nother story) his mother
was astute enough not to have been caught buying him this
pipe.  What shape do you imagine Jesus would have smoked?
Anyhow, this pipe is in very good cond., although there is a  
tooth indent on the bottom of the stem.  The draw is open. Used.
What may look like fills in the top pic are simply bowl dings.
5.75" long, bowl 1.55" tall.  Weight: 1 3/8 oz., 40 grams. $65
Charatan's Make Special Deluxe #924046 (SOLD 9/28/16)
Something didn't make sense when I first looked at this pipe
because it doesn't have the Lane "L" yet it is clearly an older
Charatan, without a scintilla of a doubt...but it had the DC stem,
which should indicate an age not pre-Lane.  It's pre-Lane, for
sure & the stem is a actual Lane DC stem
(the "CP" may have been buffed off) on an older body.  It's a
great hand made shape; an 8 sided panel cut by hand is both
difficult & not common. Grp. 5 with an open draw and proper
drilling on the bottom of the chamber.  The cond. is very good
for its age, with just a touch of wear on the inner rim.  Used.
6" long, bowl 1.95" tall.  Weight: 1 7/8 oz., 54 grams. $75.
1964 Dunhill Root Briar #924209 (SOLD 10/10/16)
The nomenclature is seriously buffed down on this pipe, so I
can't see if it's a Grp. 4 or 5 in size.  Fortunately, I can make out
the date, and the "Dunhill" name is legible.  I think the stem may
be replacement...the dot seems a bit small for the era.  Overall
the bowl/chamber of this pipe is in very good condition.  The
wear on the inside of the rim is minimal.  The draw is open.  I
think that the briar has darkened beautifully.  Used.
6" long, bowl 175" tall.  Weight: 1.75 oz., 51 grams. $110.
1967 Dunhill LBS Root Briar #416169SR (RESERVED DW)
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.
Vintage Briar #72245 (SOLD 9/11/16)
Under the name "Vintage Briar" are the words "100 Years Old."
What exactly that means, I don't know.  I do know this pipe was
made by GBD, because the shape number, 9438, that is
stamped on the shank tells me so.  It has a few minor dings &
an open draw. Standard Rhodesian size. Vulcanite stem.  Used.
5.3" long, bowl 1.65" tall.  Weight: 2 1/8 oz., 62 grams. $45.
Peterson Kildare #924215 (SOLD 10/10/16)
A Grp. 4 size in Peterson shape # 80S.  There are some tooth
marks on the bottom of the stem...they are not at all deep &
could be sanded out if one chose.  There are also a few small
dings on the bowl.  The all-important draw is not bad for a P-lip.
5.45" long, bowl 1.55" tall.  Weight: 1.5 oz., 42 grams.  $25.
Dunhill #924221 (SOLD 10/6/16)
Where to begin.  Well, there is no nomenclature...all been
buffed off, so yes, I am relying on my eyes (and a stem with a
white dot on it) to tell me that this is a very old, blasted Shell.  
The blast, happily, is still in quite good shape.  The stem is, too,
with bite marks on the bottom of it, but they are not deep.  I can
not tell if this is an original or replacement stem.  The rim of the
chamber is quite worn, but the chamber itself looks like it can
deliver a lot of smokes.  The draw is wide-open.  Large Grp. 3.
5.65" long, bowl 1.7" tall.  Weight: 1 1/8 oz., 31 grams. $50.
1976 Dunhill Shell EK #924032BK
Exceedingly gentle tooth chatter is visible on the top of the
stem, but as you can see, the rest of the pipe is sharp & crisp.
In the way of full disclosure, the stamping on the bottom was
not done well at the factory, so I am not 100% certain that the
year is '76, but from what I can see, that has to be the case.
Grp. 4 in size with open draw.  A nice birth year for someone.
5.9" long, bowl 1.7" tall.  Weight: 1.25 oz., 37 grams. Used. $150
GBD New Standard #52753 (RESERVED VJ 9/11/16)
I'm confident that this is an older GBD.  How old?  I don't know,
but looking at the color of the stain, the extra work done in
making the rim nice and round and the stem button, it seems
safe to say the 1960's.  and possibly the late 50's.  I have not
found when the New Standard grade began, but I just might
have an old catalog that gives me some idea.  If I find anything,
I'll get back to you.  The cond. is exc., the draw is wide-open,
that old vulcanite stem is mark-free and the construction is such
that a thin cleaner goes right to the bottom of the chamber.
5.2" long, bowl 1.75" tall.  Weight: 1.5 oz., 42 grams.  Used. $65.
1984 Dunhill ODA 835 #722157 (SOLD 10/17/16)
Cond. is near excellent.  The demerit is a dulling of the nomencla-
ture where it says "ODA," but every letter is there and legible, &
the rest of the nomenclature is crisp, as is the bowl rim & stem. I
think the blast quality is reminiscent of an earlier era.  Used.
6.5" long, bowl 2.2" tall.  Weight: 1 7/8 oz., 53 grams. $250.
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. $275.
1988 Ashton X Pebble Shell #52771 (RESERVED 9/11/16)
This near-new pipe is early enough in Bill Taylor's career to
have the Pat. # stamped on the bottom of the shank, with the
rest of the nomenclature.  The "X" indicates his basic size, which
is equivalent to a Dunhill Grp. 4.  The draw here is wide-open &
the construction good enough for a pipe cleaner to easily slide
to the bottom of the chamber.  Vulcanite stem.  Used, I think.
5.4" long, bowl 1.85" tall.  Weight: 1 3/8 oz., 40 grams. $225.
Willmer AAAA  Presentation #527107 (SOLD 8/17/16)
If Willmer had a higher grade, I can't remember it.  you can see
how clean the barely stained briar is, and with some color that
straight grain is going to pop.  The chamber is large enough so
that I can stick my thumb into it and overall I'd call it a Grp. 6.
The pipe is unsmoked and has an acrylic stem, which is a bit
unusual for an English-made pipe.  It's a gem for a Willmer man.
6.25" long, bowl 2.2" tall.  Weight: 2.25 oz., 65 grams. $295.
Dunhill Shell #722237 (SOLD 8/21/16)
Let's be honest, this pipe looks as though it's been through two
world wars and the Battle of the Alamo.  But the tobacco
chamber is in good char spots, no fracturing or
webbing.  The nomenclature is mostly visible, although it isn't
crisp any longer.  The "England" is entirely legible, but after the
"d" the date number is not.  There is no tooth mark on the
bottom of the stem, but the one on top of the stem is not pretty.
5.4" long, bowl 1.85" tall.  Weight: 1.25 oz., 34 grams. $65.
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..  
1949 Pat. No. Dunhill FE #37191 (SOLD 10/17/16)
Original stem and very good condition, with just a touch of wear
on an inner rim to indicate the age of this pipe.  Grp. 4.  The
nomenclature is all legible, with the exception of a few numbers
in the middle of that long string being a bit buffed out.  Used.
6" long, bowl 1.5" tall.  Weight: 1.25 oz., 36 grams.  $375.
Peterson's Standard System #72283 (SOLD 9/24/16)
One of the unwritten laws of retail is that if you have a product
that is good, and is priced fairly, and yet it doesn't sell...raise
the price.  So, feeling unappreciated, and maybe just a touch
stupid, I am going to apply that technique and raise the price of
my good Petersons.  Probably at $45, people think there's
something wrong with them.  Let's see how they feel when it's
$55.  Here's an XL 307 in exc. cond., with clean, crisp rim and
fine chamber.  The draw is that of a P-lip, but I can hardly be
expected to do anything about that, and it doesn't bother
Peterson devotees.  There are a couple little surface scratches
on the bowl and some tooth chatter on the stem, but the size &
quality of the grain more than make up for those flaws. Used.
6 1/8" long, bowl 2.1" tall.  Weight: 2 1/8 oz., 61 grams. $55.
1956 Dunhill ES #824082EG (SOLD 9/23/16)
Excellent cond. for this 60 yr. old Shell.  After the date, in small
type, is typed the curious code "B106."  I wonder what that can
mean.  The draw is wide-open.  Note that the white area on the
bottom of the stem was just the residue of a sticker and is now
gone.  Used.
6 3/8" long, bowl 1.8" tall.  Weight: 1 1/8 oz., 33 grams. $450.
Barling EXEL #824076 (SOLD 9/12/16)
At first glance, I thought (and hoped) this might be a
pre-transition piece, but it is not.  The shape # is 5639.  Still, it
is in very good cond., with an open draw and an original stem,
on which the logo can still be faintly read.  It is a credit to the
buyers of Barling that the quality of the old stem did not seem
to diminish in time. The EXEL is a Grp. 4 size.  Vulcanite stem.

Sasieni 4 Dot Walnut #824246
Not an old, family-era pipe, but this is a handsome Grp. 4 with
more-than-respectable cross grain & Bird's Eye grain.  Wide
open draw and proper construction.  Vulcanite stem.  New.

1981Dunhill Group 3 #924259 (SOLD 10/14/16)
Actually, I'm not certain that this is a 1981.  The last number is
obscured by the black band that secures the bamboo.  But I
think my guess is as close as you'll come.  Perhaps more
importantly, this pipe exhibits all the characteristics of  an
unsmoked pipe.  The inside of the bowl is smooth, as though it
has never seen tobacco.  The stem and the stem button are
mark-free.  To be safe, I'll call it used.
5.95" long, bowl 1.7" tall.  Weight: 7/8 oz., 26 grams. $145.
