I have the great honor to propose you here a pipe whose briar was turned in the 40s in Belgium! Indeed, after my brief appearance on the television news a while ago, I had the pleasure 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 touching 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 was lucky enough to acquire. It is the ‘Pot’ shape, with a chamber designed specifically to accommodate ‘Semois’ tobaccos: the chamber is particularly wide with thick walls and can also be suitable for tobacco in ‘flake’ section.  The briar is very nice, showing flames over a large part of its surface, it is here stained in a chocolate colour.  I mounted it with an ebonite stem whose flock is cut in the mass and the shank drilled at 4.2mm. The slot of the mouthpiece is well open in V for an optimal draw.  The briar has thus more than 73 years of drying in excellent conservation conditions !

Produced this year, it is therefore stamped ‘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 virgin, without coating.
The ebonite stem is new and there is no tooth mark and no claws.
