According to catalogues Redonian De Luxe is “An attractive line of first quality Briars supplied principally in rich Walnut colour in a wide range of shapes in bags and single boxes”. But this pipe is a very interesting and unusual exception from the rule: it’s made in natural “virgin” finish without any staining at all. A very good upper grade series creature from the English John Redman pipe factory made in the 1950-70s approximately.
