A Charatan’s pipe of “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 any catalogues. The pipe was well smoked but except not ideally plain walls of the chamber we didn’t find any major issues. The small teethmarks on the end of the stem were fixed, you may see the repair track under a bright light.
The pipe markings are “”CHARATAN’S MAKE \ LONDON.ENGLAND \ EXECUTIVE”, “(L)”, “Made By Hand \ in \ City of London”, “REGD № \ 203573”. The length is 16.5 cm, bowl’s hight is 5.1 cm. External dimensions of the bowl are 3.6 x 4.0 cm, internal diameter is 2.0 cm. The depth is 4.1 cm and this pipe weights 42 gr. Briar, vulcanite stem, no filter.
