Anyone have any clue as to the details of this pipe (brand, manufacturer, dating, etc.)? My research has turned up empty. Rolling Eyes

Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated!

FYI, the photos make the stem appear as though it is too large for the shank. Actually, it is a perfect fit. The pipe is unsmoked and I am sure that the vulcanite stem is original to the pipe.

Couldn't find anything with those exact markings under "B" on Pipephil.

But I discovered that I own one of the pipes pictured under "Bjarne", so, hooray for me. I guess... Neutral
Sorry.

I'm glad the post generated at least one positive result! I also looked at pipehil with no luck. Maybe someone else will have any idea?

I'd say SmokeMaster by Briarcraft...perhaps one of their mid-grades.

Georges Sachs was a tobacconist from the 1920's to the 1940's Location NY

http://www.pipephil.eu/logos/en/logo-s1.html#sachs

Briarcraft was also in NY during the same period 1920-40

Richard Kliethermes Sr. was the founder of Briarcraft. First located on Pipetown Hill Rd, Spring Valley, NY., it moved later to 66 Central Ave., Spring Valley, NY.
After the death of RK Sr., business was run by Richard Kliethermes Jr. ( 1943) and was quite prosperous between 1920 and 1940. The company closed in 1950.
Briarcraft seconds: Airo, Arcadian, Briarmeer, Cavalcade, Hallmark, L.L. Bean, Smokemaster, Sterling Hall, Wimbledon

I wouldn't be surprised if both pipes were made by the same outfit. The Diamond B logo is identical to the Briarcrafts. The stem looks like a Sachs and the bowl a Briarcraft. The diamond logo on a Briarcraft stem is vertical , whereas the Sachs stem has the exact same diamond set horizontally. Perhaps just a mix-n-match pipe put together from availble parts at the shop. :shrug:

I'll go you one better . . . Check out the Briarcraft seconds "Airo" and "Cavalcade". Both of these have the horizontal yellow diamond, just like the Sachs and this pipe. Looks like this is definitely a Briarcraft of some type.

Thanks for the great research, Mr. E! I've sent the pictures of the pipe to pipephil. Maybe it's a heretofore undocumented Briarcraft specimen? I'll post any response they send me.

Looks like a stem and shank mismatch to me. The stem diameter appears wider than the shank, which is usually the exact opposite particularly on estate pipes which have had their stems over-buffed. Just looks weird to me.

Does look like a Briarcraft though.
