Dublin the pipe - MADE IN ENGLAND
|Carl Skaggs offered a pipe rack with eight pipes on eBay. There were a briar Dublin, an Oyster White Billiard and an Ebony Dublin in the lot. I won the bidding and found that the painted pipes were in much worse condition than I had hoped and of no help to the collection, so the Dublin will go to Pipes for Sale and the Billiard will join the Pipes for Trade. The briar Dublin was in pretty good shape and a worthwhile addition to the collection of MADE IN ENGLAND pipes. An un-smoked example of this one came to me, so now this one is also on the Pipes for Sale page. The liner has been smoked pretty heavily but is caked only around inside of the rim of the liner (the Made in England pipes have a beveled edge on the liner, this pipe's is caked.) The mouthpiece show some tooth abrasion and mild oxidation and the briar has three noticeable fills. It is, however, a very good example of a very rare shape/color. Rick Osborn decided it would supplement his collection nicely and bought it.||
Valuing the pipe result for pipe 490: n/a points.
