Peterson's Donegal #830909
Carved, rather than sandblasted, so I don't have to shoot both
sides of the bowl.  The cond. is exc., crisp and clean.  The
band is sterling and I think the year of production is 1980
based on the "o" of the hallmark.  No promises.  Vulcanite.
5.4" long, bowl 1.5" tall.  Weight: 1.5 oz., 42 grams. price: $40.
Northern Briars Rox Cut Regal 4 #215038
Ian Walker's fine version of the Dunhill LB with a silver band to
add distinction and an extra touch of color to the pipe.  If it's
solid, traditional and quality you want, here is a prime example.
5.85" long, bowl 2" tall.  Weight: 2 3/8 oz., 65 grams. New. $210
Pulvers' Prior Briar
P.O. Box 61146
Palo Alto, CA  94306

(650) 965-7403
1978 Dunhill Group 6 Root Briar #817128 (SOLD)
Shape & size # 61051 in exc. cond., except I note that the stem
is not fitting perfectly flush against the shank.  I can never
figure some of this stuff out.  There are no tooth marks on the
stem and the draw is open.  the chamber here is large enough
to easily take my thumb.  Good cross grain, too.
6.5" long, bowl 2.15" tall.  Weight: 2 oz., 55 grams.  $260.
Comoy's Sandblast #82897 (RESERVED)
When Comoy's called this a "sandblast," they weren't kidding.
This ring grain and the depth of this blast are just a little short
of spectacular in the world of sandblasts.  It's nice that the
condition is also excellent.  There are two small tooth marks
on the bottom of the stem right by the button.  They can be
easily ignored.  Just don't feel too disappointed if you are not
first in asking for this, and remember, I can't immediately post
a "sold" sign on the pipe when it is spoken for. Vulcanite stem.
5.75" long, bowl 1.4" tall.  Weight: 1 oz., 29 grams. Used. $85
Pre-Republic Peterson #621689 (SOLD)
5.2" long, bowl 2.3" tall.  Weight: 2 oz., 58 grams. Used. $145.
(Or maybe not used.  It's hard to tell.)
Northern Briars Rox Cut Premier 4 #215020
The rim of the bowl is smooth, and lighter in color than the body
of the pipe.  The chamber capacity is large enough to take my
thumb, although tightly.  Although it is a size 4 for Northern
Briars, it would easily be a Grp. 5 Dunhill.  The draw is wide-
open and the drilling provides for a fluffy cleaner.  New.
6" long, bowl 1.9" tall.  Weight: 2 oz., 57 grams. Price: $220.
Parker Golden Bark #621666 (SOLD 8/28/14)
Except for tooth indents right at the button on both the top
and bottom of the stem (you should be able to see how shallow
they are in the photos on the top right) the condition is exc.  
The size is Grp. 4, as indicated in the nomenclature and the
draw is open.  This certainly appears to be a product from the
time when the Parker was a true Dunhill second.  Vulcanite stem
6" long, bowl 1.85" tall.  Weight: 1 1/8 oz., 33 grams. Used. $45.
Ashton XXX Sovereign #210758ME (SOLD 8/11/14)
Made in 2012, the  pipe is in exc. cond. with an open draw.  
The size is Group 5, but with thick chamber walls, and a wide
rim, the tobacco capacity is not going to be all that large.  The
size here would work well for both heavy flakes and an easy
smoking latakia blend.  Used.
6" long, bowl 1.8" tall.  Weight: 1 3/8 oz., 40 grams. Price: $160
Sasieni Four Dot Rustic "Melton" #82868 (RESERVED)
An excellent example of the Rustic Bulldog.  The rim is clean
and crisp, as is the nomenclature on the bottom of the shank.
There are very minor tooth marks on the bottom of the stem.
5.4" long, bowl 1.55" tall.  Weight: 1 3/8 oz., 39 grams. $145.
Dunhill Bruyere #909030RB
What we have here is a failure to communicate, based, I'm afraid
on rather muddy looking nomenclature.  I think I can see the
beginning of the "Pat. #.", but I definitely can't make out any
numbers.  The rounded button of the stem certainly looks more
than old enough for a patent number pipe.  The major problem is a
slight crack at the top of the rim which does go down the bowl
slightly more than 1/4".  There are some tooth marks on the stem,
including one that I would call serious.  But I don't think the integrity
of the stem is compromised unless you are a hard biter.  And my
experience with fractures in the bowl like this are quite
good...unless you insist on taking a reamer to the inside of the bowl.
BTW, this is a Grp. 1, so it is small, and the white dot is a gray from
time and use (or use and time).  My last customer who bought a
Dunhill with a much deeper and longer fissure than this one has is
quite happy with his pipe, which smokes well and shows no sign of
developing a larger crack.  Used.
5.8" long, bowl 1.5" tall.  Weight: 3/4 oz., 21 grams. Price: $60.  
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
Pre-Transition Barling Guinea Grain EXEL #112816TD
In very good cond. with the logo quite clear on the old, orig.
stem.  There is also an "E.B." and a "Regd" (for "Registered" I
presume) on the shank.  It might be a Grp. 5 in size, and at
least a Grp. 4, which is big for an EXEL.  There ae some ding
marks on the front of the pipe toward the bottom of the bowl
and the stem has a very, very minor tooth mark on the top.  It's
super clean inside and ready to light up and enjoy. Used pipe.
5.65" long, bowl 1.65" tall.  Weight: 1 3/4 oz., 49 grams. $475
Peterson's Deluxe #519043 (SOLD 7/7/14)
The pipe is a Grp. 4 in size, and in very good cond., with crisp
nomenclature and even an open draw.  There are a few minor
dings on the rim to detract from perfect condition, but that's it.
5.4" long, bowl 1.5" tall.  Weight: 1.25 oz., 36 grams. Used. $65.
1966 Dunhill Root Grp. 3 #63470
Although designated a Grp. 3 in size, that was done in 1966.  
Standards change (as in companies can't stand being honest
and ethical...that just eats at them) and this would probably be
a Grp. 4 today...and 20 times more expensive.  But that's OK.  
You have Uncle Marty. The pipe is in very good cond.  There
are minor dings on the bowl rim and the slightest of wear on
that rim, but the stem is mark-free and original and the draw is
wide-open.  This is a Root with good cross grain and a lot of
handsome Bird's Eye.  Used.
6" long, bowl 1.7" tall.  Weight: 1 oz., 30 grams. $225.
Northern Briar Rox Cut Premier #215018
Such good values as Ian Walker's pipes tend to sell quickly,
and it's hard for me to understand how he can put out pipes for
so little.  This pipe is a Group 5 and as a "Premier" is a higher
grade than his basic model, although I'm not sure what
constitutes the difference.  I don't have to tell followers of Ian
what they get for their money, but just in case, the draw is wide
open, & the air hole is drilled right to the proper pointat the
bottom of the chamber. New.
6 1/8" long, bowl 1.9" tall.  Weight: 2 7/8 oz., 81 grams. $220.
Dunhill 75th Anniversary Pipe #531042 (SOLD 5/9/14)
Beside a little match or lighter scorching on one part of the rim,
the pipe is in excellent, even near-new, condition.  It is small,
about a Grp. 2...maybe a small Grp. 3.  It does, of course, have
an Alfred Dunhill (AD) band with a hallmark and nomenclature
indicating it is a 75th Anniversary pipe.  
5.15" long, bowl 1.7" tall.  Weight: 1 1/8 oz., 31 grams. $265
Peterson's Dublin #1127025SB  (SOLD 3/11/14)
Great straight grain below the bead, fine Bird's Eye above, a
brindle stem and wide-open draw, plus a sterling spigot
treatment on clean, light-stained briar.  About all a Peterson
devotee can ask for.  And no wonder, it comes from a fabulous
collection that consisted of Bo Nordhs, Lars Ivarssons and tons
and tons of Chonowitsch & Bang pipes.  This pipe spent years
in very honored company and must have picked up many of
their finer points.  The cond. is exc.; it has barely been smoked.
5.8" long, 1.6" tall.  Weight: 15/8 oz., 47 grams. Used. $225.
1984 Dunhill Cumberland 419223TF (SOLD)
A Grp 4 in excellent condition, a wide-open draw and, of
course, constructed so that a cleaner goes right through to the
bottom of the tobacco chamber.  The stem is brindle and the
brown stain is not quite as dark as it shows on the photos here.
The smooth, complementary rim is as it should be, setting off
the rustication and the stem.  Used.
5.8" long, bowl 1.8" tall.  Weight: 1 1/8 oz., 33 grams. $145.
1967 Dunhill Group 3 Root #57411RB   (SOLD)
Some of the nomenclature is buffed down, but everything
essential is quite legible.  Although the stem is an original
Dunhill stem, it is not the stem that came with this is a
much older stem, a really fine stem, but it is not a fishtail, that
the pipe's nomenclature calls for.  The condition is very good,
with just a little ding on the outside of the rim.  Of course, the
draw is open and the cross grain is interesting.  Used.
5.5" long, bowl 1.9" tall.  Weight:1 oz., 28 grams. $150
Dunhill  Group 2 Tanshell #715150
Yes, there is definitely wear on the inside of the rim, but the
difficult part of this pipe is translating the date stamp.  It's clear
enough, but after the "England," there's a '7' which should
indicate a 1967, but after that is an '
8' which would then
indicate a 1958 pipe, suggesting the '7' was a mistake.  Well
take your preference.  Used.
6" long, bowl 1.65" tall.  Weight: 7/8 oz., 26 grams. $145.
1993 Grp. 5 Dunhill Spigot Bruyere #621695TH (RES.)
Pretty crisp and clean; actually, like-new. I'm out of the loop,
having once been a Dunhill Principal Pipe Dealer (PPD) but
from what I'm hearing, new Dunhills are way up there in price,
so it was good to know that as a Grp. 5, I could hope to get a
few extra dollars for this pipe.  I just tried to check prices, but
the best I could do on short notice was the 1999 price for a
Group 5 Spigot, which was $885.  Still, you should buy the pipe
because you like it, not because the price is favorable.
6 1/4" long, bowl 1.55" tall.  Weight: 1 7/8 oz., 53 grams. $350.
Sasieni 4 Dot "Regent" #82862
Maybe somebody banged the bowl on an ashtray, because the
outside of the rim is dinged a bit...accentuated in the photos;
it's not bad looking in person.  The cond. is otherwise exc.  The
stem is mark-free, the draw is open and with just a twist, a
cleaner goes through to the bottom of the bowl. Definitely from
the family era, but how old, I don't know.  The dots indicate is is
pretty old.  Grp. 4 in size.  Vulcanite stem.  Used.
5.5" long, bowl. 1.9" tall.  Weight: 1.5 oz., 44 grams. $115.
1972 Dunhill DR H #519182
From a seller's point of view, one of the problems in dealing
with products like used pipes is that there is no "book" on what
the price should be, so I often worry that I am selling far too
cheaply and could be getting considerably more for a specific
pipe.  Nobody likes to give their potential income away.  Well,
that's not going to be a problem here.  I think I'm giving this
high grade Dunhill away.  There is wear on one spot of the rim,
but the inner chamber is fine, and there is a crack in the shank
that the sterling band takes care of just fine.  Used.
5.7" long, bowl 1.5" tall.  Weight: 1 oz., 28 grams. Price: $450.
Sasieni Four Dot Oom Paul Walnut #1128072
The nomenclature is no longer crisp on this old buzzard,  but
it's there and it's legible.  The cond. is is exc., for both the stem
and the bowl, including the crisp rim.  The draw is wide open,
but I must say the draft hole is drilled quite high.  Used pipe.
4.65" long, bowl 2.2" tall.  Weight: 1 5/8 oz., 47 grams. $225
1978 Dunhill ODA #1128031 (SOLD)
A touch of wear on the inner rim of the chamber, as you can
see above, is all that keeps this from being in exc. cond.  There
is also the tiniest tooth mark on the bottom of the stem, but it's
so slight, I almost missed it and even after seeing it, I almost
decided to omit it from this description.  Panels often tend to
get dark on the side panel(s) due to thin walls, but not with this
big boy.  All the chamber walls are quite thick enough.  Used.
6.2" long, bowl 2.1" tall.  Weight: 2.5 oz., 72 grams. $275
Frederick Tranter #621714 (SOLD)
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.   
U.S. Pat. Number Dunhill #310314
The exact date of production is very difficult to determine, even
using a dating guide.  Not that the nomenclature isn't clear,
because most of it is, but the date stamp is a bit muddy and I
can't determine if it's a
16 or an 18.  Either way, I think the pipe
is from the 1930's, and thus is either a 1936 or 1938.  The
condition is quite good, although not pristine, by which I mean
you can feel the seam between the stem and shank as the
stem was obviously buffed down a bit.  But with no tooth marks
on the stem and no wear on the bowl rim, you can't really ask
for much more.  The wide tenon diameter is typical of the time.
5" long, bowl 1.85" tall.  Weight: 1 3/4 oz., 51 grams. $360.
1968 Dunhill Tanshell Grp. 4 #63480 (SOLD 6/18/14)
The pipe is nicely cleaned inside, as well as out and shows no
residue of prior tobacco use in the taste.  As far as on the rim,
yes there is carbon deposit, but the pipe is 46 yrs. old.  It's
actually in very good condition and should last as long as the
owner takes care of it.  Wide-open draw & original stem. used.
5.6" long, bowl 1.75" tall.  1 3/8 oz., 38 grams. $135.
1963 Dunhill P #108171 (SOLD)
There is some carbon on the bowl rim, and some minor tooth
marks in the old, original stem, but overall this pipe is in very
good condition.  The draw is wide-open and the inner chamber
is in exc. cond.  That good 'character' sandblast is evident, too.
It is a Grp. 4 in size.  Used.
5.2" long, bowl 1.5" tall.  Weight: 1 3/8 oz., 40 grams. $225.
Sasieni Four Dot "Hurlingham" #310148TJ (SOLD)
This is a large Apple, a Grp. 5 in size, and the overall cond. is
good, but there are shallow tooth indentations on the bottom of
the stem.  The nomenclature is considerably buffed down.  But
the bowl rim, the chamber and the bowl are all in good shape,
the draw is wide open and there's no reason to suspect that
there aren't a lot of good smokes left in this pipe.  Used.
5.9" long, bowl 1.8" tall.  Weight: 1 3/4 oz., 49 oz., Price: $55
GBD Pedigree #108116 (SOLD 1/8/14)
This high end GBD is in excellent condition, except for the
original stem, with the brass logo, that has significant tooth
indentations on the top and bottom.  The 2nd stem is acrylic
and both fits and looks good.  Nice grain, at least on one side
of the bowl.  It is fairly large, and my thumb can squeeze into
the chamber.  Used.
6.3" long, bowl 2" tall.  Weight: 1.5 oz., 42 grams. price: $75.
Patent Number Dunhill #310187SW (SOLD)
The closest we can come in terms of dating this pipe is that it
was made between 1927 and 1941, and this is according to
John Loring's guide.  The nomenclature is buffed quite low on
the side where it says "Dunhill," but the name is certainly
visible.  On the side of the shank where it has the Pat. #, the
nomenclature is stronger.  The stem is free of marks and
appears to be original, but the inner rim of the chamber does
have a spot that shows wear due to a lighter, I'd bet.  The
tobacco chamber is in exc. cond. and should give lots of good
smokes before this pipe's life is over.  Used.
6" long, bowl 1.8" tall.  Weight: 1 1/8 oz., 33 grams. $175.
Ben Wade Ambassador #63525 (SOLD 7/7/14)
Not only made in London as the stamping in the shank asserts,
but made by Charatan, as the shape proclaims.  The name of
this shape is Trafalgar and this one is in exc. cond., with a good
draw, fine Birdseye grain and an acrylic, non-oxidizing stem.
It's a Grp. 5 in size. with thick chamber walls.  Used.
5.8" long, bowl 2.2" tall.  Weight: 1 3/4 oz., 48 grams. $50.
Charatan Selected #621720 (SOLD)
Typically large sized Charatan Selected with a bowl diameter
large enough for me to easily insert my thumb into.  The cond.
is very good, with just a nick on the inner rim of the chamber
where some smart guy tried to ream a bit too much.  
Fortunately, he confined himself to the tip-top of the chamber.
There is a Lane "L" on the shank as well as an "F.H."  The draw
is wide-open.  Used.  Vulcanite stem.
6 1/4" long, bowl 2.4" tall.  Weight: 2 oz., 55 grams. $175..
Peterson Deluxe #310225 (SOLD 7/12/14)
On the rare occasion when they do make a good pipes, such
as this one, they have to screw it up with that P-lip, which
constricts the draw making it impossible to get a good smoke
out of the pipe.  Well, that's their choice and also the choice of
a goodly number of smokers who are absolutely devoted to
Peterson pipes.  Besides the thin,  classic lines here, the grain
shows the openness of a Ligurian-like hydroscopic briar, which
absorbs moisture better than the more aesthetic tight grained
pipes and thus promotes a drier smoke.  The pipe's condition is
excellent and as a DeLuxe, I wouldn't expect to see any fills.
6.25" long, bowl 1.7" tall.  Weight: 1 1/8 oz., 33 grams. $75.
Pre-Transition Barling L #1113289PN (SOLD 3/13/14)
A small, maybe Grp. 2, piece with crisp nomenclature and the
residual of the Barling logo on the original stem.  This is an
unusual shape for a Barling, although with old English pipes,
the small size is not uncommon due to the very high taxes on
tobacco.  The condition is excellent.  YOW.  Used.
6" long, bowl 1.2" tall.  Weight: 1 oz., 28 grams. $365
Pre-Transitional Barling Quaint #63684 (SOLD)
Although some of the nomenclature is faint, such as the "EXEL"
the overall condition is excellent.  The draw is wide-open and
the tobacco chamber is in superb condition, so the owner
should be able to smoke this pipe for generations to come.  
Barling is in block letters, there is also a TVF & Ye Olde Wood.
6 1/4" long, bowl 1.75" tall.  Weight: 1 3/8 oz., 40 grams. $425.
Pre-Transition Barling's Make #310105RB (SOLD 1/9/14)
This Grp. 3 in size pipe does have a ding on the bowl and some
wear on the bowl rim.  The tobacco chamber is in very good
condition, and the draw is wide-open.  The logo has been
buffed off the stem, but the "Barling's Make, Ye Olde Wood,"
and the shape number of 129 are quite legible on the shank.
The other side of the shank, with the "Made in England" on the
other side of the shank is buffed down to the point of hard to
read.  Used.
5.7" long, bowl 1.8" tall.  Weight: 1 oz., 28 grams. $135.
Northern Briar Regal #63632TL (SOLD)
Large, Grp. 6 size in excellent condition and with a thin cleaner,
at least, it goes straight through to the bottom of the chamber.
Perhaps most noteworthy is the grain, a lot of Birdseye on the
sides of the bowl and cross grain at the front and back.  The
stem is a brindle vulcanite.  Used.
5.8" long, bowl 2.25" tall.  Weight: 2 3/8 oz., 68 grams. $135.
1997 Ashton XXX Old Church #519025
A large pipe, but not a large tobacco chamber, which means
the walls of the chamber, at least near the top of the bowl, are
thick.  The pipe's condition is excellent with only a negligible
tooth mark near the button on the top of the stem marring the
condition.  When talking about a Bill Ashton Taylor pipe, it is
important to talk about construction, and here the draw is
mercifully wide open.  That bodes well for the great smoking
quality you can get from an Ashton pipe.  Used.
6.3" long, bowl 1.8" tall.  Weight: 2.5 oz., 71 grams. $210
Ferndown 3 Star Root #1127182 (SOLD 2/10/14)
Big, clean, crisp.  Pristine condition with a wide-open draw and
thick chamber walls.  The band is sterling, of course.  Used.
7" long, bowl 2" tall.  Weight: 2 oz., 55 grams. Price: $200
1977 Dunhill Bruyere Grp. 5 #63548
Shape #522 with some good cross grain and a wide-open draw.
There are a few minor imperfections detracting from the
condition, thus I have to say that the condition is very good
rather than excellent. The size is ample, even for a 5. The stem
is acrylic, like all good Dunhill stems.  Used.  
5.5" long, bowl 2.2" tall.  Weight: 2 3/4 oz., 77 grams. $175.
Peterson's Kildare #715033
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.
Sasieni Four Dot "Stamford" #525090LG (SOLD)
Certainly family era, and maybe older than that I originally
thought based on the stem button.  Overall condition is exc.,
although there are two dots on top of rim.  No tooth marks on
the stem and a nice, open draw.  The cross grain is decent if
not spectacular.  Used.
5.7" long, bowl 1/8" tall.  Weight: 1 1/4 oz., 31 grams. $115.
Peterson Barrel #57361
For those who know this standard Peterson shape, there is not
I need to say except that this one is new.  The draw is not bad
for a Peterson and if you happen not to know, this is a small
sized pipe, which I would call a Grp. 2 using dunhill sizes. New.
5.6" long, bowl 1.55" tall.  Weight: 7/8 oz., 24 grams. $75.
Charatan Supreme #215024
The bowl looks even taller than its 2" height, and it has a big
enough diameter to easily take my thumb while also having
thick walls (the rim is 4/10" wide).  The stem is pristine, and the
rest of the pipe is in excellent condition, including the
nomenclature, which shows off the Lane "L."  The bottom is flat,
so it sits up and the draw is open.  Used.
6 1/4" long, bowl 2" tall.  Weight: 2 1/8 oz., 59 grams. $395.
1998 Ashton XXX Pebble Grain #210725EA (SOLD 2/15/14)
The pipe is in near-new condition, with a large bowl, of a Grp. 6
size.  The draw is wide open and the blast deep and good, showing
a lot of ring grain.  As impressive as the rest of the pipe is, it is the
narrow, flat and carefully crafted stem that most catches my
attention here.  BTW, and here's something you can notice, in the
old Dunhill tradition, the shank next to the stem is not given the
smooth treatment.  It is very difficult to make the stem fit if the
stem and shank aren't sanded together, hence the smooth ring on
the sandblasts of even the most experienced, highly regarded pipe
makers.  Pay attention in the future and you'll see what I mean.
5.8" long, bowl 2" tall.  Weight: 1 3/4 oz., 48 grams. $215.
1983 Dunhill Chestnut #419192TF (SOLD)
I thought this was a Grp. 3, but the shape # is 13031, and the
first number usually describes the Grp. size, so maybe this is
officially a Grp. 1, but I've seen Grp. 1s that seemed 1/2 the
size of this pipe.  The cond. is exc., the draw is wide open and
while it may be hard to discern through my poor photography,
the stem is brindle.  Maybe all Chestnuts have brindle stems.
5.6" long, bowl 1.55" tall.  Weight: 7/8 oz., 24 grams. $160.
Northern Briar Rox Cut Regal #215022
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.
Northern Briars Rox Cut Premier 4 #215058
There's a lot of bowl capacity in this extremely comfortable (but
rough textured) pipe.  If you like rubbing the pipe with your
hand and fingers as you smoke, the Rox Cut pipes made by
Ian Walker are for you like no other.  This one is a Grp. 5 in
size with an open draw and with just a little bend in the tip of the
cleaner, it goes right through to the chamber bottom.  new.

1967 Grp. 4 Dunhill Root #82892
All pre-1968 Dunhills were bench made, so this qualifies as
having been produced during Dunhill's long golden age.  The
condition is essentially very good, with just a little wear and
carbon on the bowl rim.  The stem is in excellent cond., and is
clearly original as illustrated by the dot.  The draw is open, but
more important than that, in this case, is the absence of any
dark spots on the sides of the bowl.  Panels typically are thin on
the two sides and often develop dark spots from the heat of the
chamber.  Not here, so I'd guess this is a cool smoking pipe.
5.9" long, bowl 1.75" tall.  Weight: 1 1/4 oz., 36 grams. $175.
Peterson's Donegal #830932
The condition is excellent, the rim is clean and crisp, as is the
nomenclature on the shank and sterling silver band.  Typical
P-lip draw, which puts off no Peterson devotee but may bother
you a bit if you're not used to this style button.  Vulcanite. Used.
6" long, bowl 1.8" tall.  Weight: 1 oz., 29 grams. $35.
