Default Re: Old Stanwell clean up

Turns out there's a back story to these pipes. It is indeed carved by Tom Eltang. According to a chap on another forum, this is a 63S (or perhaps 126) shape. Tom was employed by Stanwell and pre-selected the briar and custom stained them for customers while on pipe tours. Seems it's an unusual piece of pipe history.

... and there I was thinking of floggng it......
