According to Wilczak and Colwell Craftsman pipes were produced in England by Ben Wade and Hall & Fitzgerald. But neither the shape of this pipe nor the nomenclature are similar to Ben Wade products, no matter – family times or Lane era. Therefore we’re pretty sure it’s made by H&F – one of very old, respectable and famous English manufactures, well known since the end of the XIX century and produced wonderful pipes almost until the 1980s. You may compare the nomenclature to their Clifton pipes to dispel doubts. A very impressive implementation of the traditional English pot shape, amazing straight grain, no issues, very accurately smoked chamber – highly recommended!
