M.L.C. Ambrol


In the 1930th the fisher and in combination – the chief physician of Chicago, doctor Paul E. Grabov liked to sit smoking pipes with the owner of a drugstore and the same inveterate fisher Mr. Brown. Sometimes they were also adjoined by Mr. Louis Linkman, the owner of the tobacco company of the same name and pipe factory right there in Chicago. In one of such evenings Mr. Linkman asked whether Dr. Grabow agrees if Linkman calls by his name an essentially new, innovative series of pipes. The physician caught “such a huuuuuge perch” yesterday and of course agreed. And soon “Doctor Grabov” pipes blew up the North American market. This agreement wasn’t anywhere recorded, and doctor Grabov didn’t receive any royalty. But Linkman’s company supplied him with pipes until the end of his life, and the doctor participated with pleasure in development of new models.

Before Dr. Grabow, Linkman’s pipes were named in honor of the owner’s mother: M.L.C. – “Mary Linkman & Co”. One of such pipes we are proud to offer today.

The work with the pipe was a little specific: the material of the stem is not usual ebonite-acryle, but fashionable “artificial amber”, the original “screw” tennon was lost therefore we had to replace it with a more modern one. The pipe markings are “AmbroL \ (M.L.C.)”. The length is 9.7 cm (3.82″), and the bowl’s height is 4.2 cm (1.65″). External diameter of the bowl is 3.7 cm (1.46″), internal diameter is 1.9 cm (0.75″). The depth is 3.1 cm (1.22″) and this pipe weighs 34 gr. Briar, artificial amber stem, no filter. The stem sits not too tough, but reliable enough.
