Loring “Dunhill introduced the LB shortly following the end of World War I and the shape soon became one of, if not the most popular. The principal attributes of the shape, a thick shank and ‘applish billiard’ bowl are found at inception and for the great most part consistently thereafter. ” Most experts believe the “LB” abbreviation stands for the “Large Billiard” and “LBS” – “Large Billiard Slender”. A highly collectable sample!

      Hi Daniele,

      thank you very much for contacting Victoria’s pipes and for your interest in pipes!

      I have already tried to respond you on Twitter but perhaps the message was lost. The pipe is already on its way to a buyer therefore it will remain “Reserved” until the cutomer receives it and confirms he’s satisfied with the purchase. All available pipes are listed in the “Store” section. Also you may follow us on


      so you’ll be updated on all new products.

      We don’t have a showroom but we ship our pipes world wide including Italy – there’s a number of great cutomers and friends!

      All the best to you in the New 2018!

      Your highly welcome any time with any questions!

      The best firendly regards,
