BBB Best Make 602

England, unsmoked

An unsmoked BBB Best Make pipe from the second half of the XX century. After ancient times silver hallmarks BBB didn’t apply any signs of a year or at least of a period of production, therefore we can’t say more specific. The pipe did require some efforts: the shank was stopped with a bowl coat solution, so we had to clean it and re-coat the bowl. The inlaid diamond logo on the stem looks a bit overbuffed and had some light scratches and splintering, we fixed it additionally with a super glue for the maximal reliability.

The pipe markings are “BBB \ BEST MAKE”, “MADE IN ENGLAND \ 602”. The length is 13.0 cm (5.12″), bowl’s height is 4.5 cm (1.77″). External diameter of the bowl is 3.3 cm (1.3″), internal diameter is 1.9 cm (0.75″). The depth is 3.7 cm (1.46″) and this pipe weights 30 gr. Briar, vulcanite stem, aluminium air cooler.
