Every respected pipe manufacturer tried to expand the range and to attract buyers not only with a variety of models, shapes and finishes, but also with numerous “delicacies”: accessories, pipes sets – for 7 days, for 5 days, “evening – morning”, and so on and so forth. Naturally, the value of such set is far higher, than a sum of costs of the pipes separately, and collectors are still are at war for each artifact. Naturally, John Redman’s factory offered a lot of own accessories and own presentation sets (see the 6-pipe Kings Ransom box in the catalog). And recently we succeeded to obtain a wonderful Redman’s Royal set, consisting of two still unsmoked pipes of the highest grade. A great finding to brag!
Both pipes are marked “REDMAN’S ROYAL \ LONDON MADE”, “MADE IN \ ENGLAND”.
