A rare and collectable Parker pipe made in late 1950s or early 1960s! On one hand this pipe belongs to the famous Dunhill family, on the other hand in 1950s Parker was a unique “company in company” even with own separate supply and marketing policies. Therefore many pipe smokers and collectors do prefer Parker Root Bruyere and Super Briar pipes. Moreover, when a pipe is of such an exclusive elegant shape and weights only 29 g!
The pipe markings are “PARKER \ \ BRIAR BARK”, “MADE IN LONDON \ ENGLAND”, “141”. The length is 15.5 cm (6.1″), bowl’s height is 4.8 cm (1.89″). External diameter of the bowl is 3.5 cm (1.38″), internal diameter is 1.8 cm (0.71″). The depth is 4.0 cm (1.57″) and this pipe weights 29 gr. Briar, vulcanite stem, no filter. The chamber has been protected with a break-in coat. The stem is newly made of the fresh piece of vulcanite so we can consider the pipe as a “partially unsmoked” :-).
