I have the great pleasure to present you here a pipe whose briar was turned in the 40s in Belgium! Indeed, following my brief appearance on the television news a while ago, I was able to get in touch with the descendants of an old Antwerp pipe factory which ceased its activities shortly after the war, in 1949. This factory, which belonged to the Dierckx family, produced and marketed, among others, the Park Lane, Dirkson and Cumberland brands, and the models they made perfectly reflect the English aesthetics and classicism of the time, a style that was very much in vogue in the pipe industry of that period in Belgium and that has never gone out of fashion, as witnessed by the attraction that the Dunhill brand still enjoys today. It was a very moving moment to welcome in my modest workshop Mr Dierckx, now 94 years old, who was reminiscing about his young years in his father’s factory.
The model I am proposing here is taken from one of the many raw stummels and ebonite stems that I have acquired. It is of course the ‘Pot’ shape, in a mixed rustisblasted (rusticated and sandblasted) and black-stained finish. The flat base allows it to be placed without spilling its contents. This model respects English standards and classicism. It is mounted with an ebonite stem whose flock is cut in the mass and whose shank is drilled at 4.2mm. The concave slot of the mouthpiece is well opened in a V shape for an optimal draw. The briar has therefore dried for at least 73 years in excellent conservation conditions!
Produced in the year 2022, it is therefore marked ‘Tradition 2022’.
|This pipe is new and has never been smoked.
|The stummel is in pristine condition, showing no apparent stroke or claw.
|The chamber is new and precoated.
|The ebonite stem is new and there is no tooth mark and no claws.
