England, 1980-90s

We would assign the pipe to the period between 1984, when James Upshall company started to engrave stamping on pipes, and 1996, when they introduced logos on stems too. Like every James Upshall pipe this one was completely hand made by Barry Jones, former top carver at Charatan’s. The shape is really very unusual and “Charatanish”, it’s practically a freehand.

The pipe marking is “TILSHEAD \ ENGLAND”, “MADE BY HAND”. The length is 16.7 cm (6.57″), bowl’s height is 5.0 cm (1.97″). External diameter of the bowl is 4.1 cm (1.61″), internal diameter is 2.3 cm (0.9″). The depth is 4.4 cm (1.73″) and this pipe weights 42 gr. Briar, vulcanite stem, no filter.
