External diameter of the bowl is 4.0 cm (1.57″), internal diameter is 2.3 cm (0.91″). The depth is 3.4 cm (1.34″) and this pipe weights 76 gr. Briar, vulcanite stem, no filter. The chamber has moderate smoked wear not excluding light roughness, but without any substantial issues. The bowl had a few small chips we’ve very carefully and reliably patched.
