Understanding the differences between pipes built in Mansell Street, Prescott Street and Grosvenor Street is an exciting challenge, as well as being able to spot the difference between a pipe that has the "£" Lane stamp, but belongs to the period 1955-1960 (when Lane was simple importer for the USA) from a pipe that has the "£" but it belongs to the next period (when Lane becomes the owner of the brand).
Another interesting challenge is the study of the latter period.
At that time I was in touch with many of these carvers in order to learn more about that.

Mr Charatan was an immigrant full of ambition who immediately attempted to create an elite product.
The very first comparison was represented by Dunhill, that had always produced pipes characterised by a maniacal desire for consistency and quality control. The imprint left by its various managements, until the '80s, was to commission the creation of new pipes to "master carvers" with individual characteristics in their work.
For the translation I used the words 'stem' or 'mouthpiece' as perfect synonyms. I have had the idea for a long time to publish on the web a collection of articles about dating and history of brands of pipes, especially English makes.
If you have any question about the translation feel free to email me at mailto:[email protected], but if you want to point out or clarify any of the details, please contact directly. Therefore, I finally decided to start the exercise discussing the most difficult brand to date..pardon, one of the easiest to date.
He characterized the production by ceaselessly improving even the smallest detail of the pipes that were already considered an absolute reference point.
