|Frederick Tranter #621714
|In doing a little on-line research, I found that Frederick Tranter
took over, in 1937, a shop that was opened in 1898 by a man
named Collins. The pipe here must have been produced
shortly after that take-over because the stem clearly has a
between the world wars button. It also has a Comoy's shape #,
so it was made by that company for Tranter. It is new, or
unsmoked, and while there are large fills on the pipe, that old
Comoy's wood should provide a great smoke. But more than
that, the pipe has, in my eyes, historic value. Vulcanite stem.
4 3/8" long, bowl 2.3" tall. Weight: 2 3/8 oz., 66 grams. $50.
