It’s perhaps the tallest Charatan’s pipe we have ever offered! This giant high grade Executive was made in the “Second Lane era (1965-76), the period of the brightest blossoming of this brand, delightful shapes and grains, which eclipsed all others pipe makers including Dunhill. There’s no shape number on the pipe, thus it was made by one of the leading carvers at this factory regardless of any catalogues. An unique creature from Charatan’s artisans, it’s even strange why they didn’t mark the pipe with such fantastic straight grain as Supreme or Selected!
The pipe marking is “CHARATAN’S MAKE \ LONDON. ENGLAND \ EXECUTIVE”, “MADE BY HAND”. The length is 15.8 cm (6.22″), the bowl’s height is 6.8 cm (2.68″). External diameter of the bowl is 4.5 cm (1.77″), internal diameter is 2.5 cm (0.98″). The depth is 5.6 cm (2.2″) and this pipe weights 56 gr. Briar, vulcanite stem, no filter.
