HARDCASTLE Special Quality

posted in: HARDCASTLE | 1
England, 1946-67

A very well preserved tall (already with an obvious hint on a chimney) billiard from the early “”Dunhill” era of the Hardcastle’s history, it was born in the period from 1946 for 1967, i.e. at the time of a harmonious merge of “family” technologies and “Dunhill” management. The pipe was smoked perhaps once or twice.

The pipe marking is “special quality by \ Hardcastle”, “MADE IN LONDON \ ENGLAND”. The length is 15.3 cm (6.02″), bowl’s height is 5.2 cm (2.05″). External diameter of the bowl is 3.4 cm (1.34″), internal diameter is 2.0 cm (0.79″). The depth is 4.8 cm (1.89″) and this pipe weights 38 gr. Briar, vulcanite stem, aluminium air cooler.

    Since I retired, I decided to take up the pipe again after fourty years , I dug out my old pipe collection, and found a Hardcastle pipe, which I couldn’t identify without your site. Thank you so much.
