A family era (Pre Lane) Charatan’s pipe of a very uncommon and stylish shape. More precisely the pipe belongs to the Rueben’s era (1910-1960) and very probably it was made before the WWII – such the “cutty” shape was both a tribute to old good English clay pipes and a symbol of the succession of this tradition.
The pipe markings are “CHARATAN’S MAKE \ LONDON ENGLAND \ DE LUXE”, “54”. The length is 12.9 cm (5.08″), bowl’s height is 4.2 cm (1.65″). External diameter of the bowl is 3.1 cm (1.22″), internal diameter is 1.7 cm (0.67″). The depth is 3.7 cm (1.46″) and this pipe weights 26 gr. Briar, vulcanite stem, no filter. The chamber has been protected with a break-in coat.
