SAVORY'S Argyll 283 (Dunhill)

SAVORY’S Argyll 283 (Dunhill)

posted in: DUNHILL | 2

A wonderful cherrywood pipe from the Dunhill’s family! The brand Savory (Savory’s) was created in the 1885 and very soon was acquired by Dunhill. We were advised that it was a tobacconist located on the Agryll str. in London. Savory pipes were ones of the Dunhill seconds (similarly to Hardcastle, Parker, Masta) and have been sold through this tobacco shop. One of the most successful series was named in honour of the street – Argyll.

​The pipe markings are “283 \ Savory’s \ ARGYLL \ MADE IN LONDON \ ENGLAND”. The length is 14.0 cm, bowl’s hight is 4.8 cm. External and internal diameters of the bowl are 3.7 cm and 2.1 cm. The depth is 3.5 cm and this pipe weights 39 gr. Briar, vulcanite stem, aluminium stinger. The chamber has normal wear after accurate use.

    I found what I’m assuming is a smooth finish Savory Argyll 283 recently. It has the “Crown over S” logo on the vulcanite stem, a stinger like the one in your photos and the words “Made in London” over “England” on the right side. The 283 is stamped on the bottom of the shank. There are no other stampings that I see.

      If your pipe is a cherrywood (poker) of a similar shape and dimensions, you’re right, that’s absolutely sure another one Savory.
