We have carefully examined all our records and found only one manufacturer with the exactly such COM (Country of Manufacturing) stamping where the letter E in “England” is placed below the DE in “Made”. Therefore we are absolutely sure this is the well preserved and lightly smoked Parker Hardcastle product made after 1967. And the most probably the pipe was prepared for one of the Hardcastle’s series – this is the right brand name for such the large and weighty bulldog.
The pipe markings are “MADE IN LONDON \ ENGLAND”. The length is 16.1 cm (6.34″), bowl’s height is 6.0 cm (2.36″). External diameter of the bowl is 4.8 cm (1.89″), internal diameter is 2.1 cm (0.83″). The depth is 4.7 cm (1.85″) and this pipe weights 64 gr. Briar, vulcanite stem, no filter.
