I have this very nice Bjarne pipe, anyone here help with age/model, etc... It's a bent bulldog and that's about all I know. I don't think it's a Viking. Thanks all!

Maybe Mogens Johansen's pieces? Smoked a bit of Cyprian mixture in it today, perfect draw.

Definately a Bjarne with the logo "BJ" on the stem. I do not see it as a bulldog though. I'm thinking more "apple" due to the roundness of the bowl. If the two circles were further up and the bowl took on more of a slight "V" shape, then I would say "bulldog." Looking at the very slight bulge in the middle, you could possibly push it in the direction of a "Rhodesian."

But, I'm thinking more "apple" Bjarne Nielsen.

Other than the "BJ" on the stem, were there any other "marks" or "stamps" observed in or around the shank areas?

Doesn't a Rhodesian have a round shank?

Round shank = Rhodesian was my first thought. Bulldog/apple...? Stamped on the bottom across the square shanke is "Bjarne Handmade in Denmark"

Thank you Mark, if the first bowl out of her is any indication, indeed many years of enjoyment coming. :D
