This bowl measures 3/4" X 3/4". Great for flakes.

It looks very similar to the Chacom Royale I just purchased.  At least as far as the shape is concerned.

I am in the prcess of breaking mine in using some SG FVF.  So I made the assumption that it is a good flake pipe.

Enjoy Smile

What is the nomenclature on the side/s of the pipe? Looks very well smoked.

Sebastian Beo also makes a similar shape. Are you looking for one, or are you just curious about that particular pipe?

There's a ton of pipes out there that were made especially for shops, sometimes they bore the shop's name, other times they did not.  Sometimes they came from good, reputable companies, other times from obscure ones of questionable origin and practice.  Smoking the pipe will often let you know if it was from an okay company or not.  I have a few no-namer mystery pipes that smoke circles (rings?) around certain pipes with brand names.  Luck of the draw (so to speak), if they're cheap, I'll pick up unknown pipes like that and see if they're wonderful "sleepers." 

That's a keen panel prince, Walt.   Give it a whirl and test its mettle, if you haven't already.   You may never know its origin.   It'll have to stand on its own merits.  Smile

I think Imported Briar is one the most prolific makers ever. I understand they're made by the basket full.lol!

Well, since there is a brass screen in the bottom of that panel, and you are from Florida, I think I would at the very least get that brass screen out of there. Laughing

The reason for the brass screen is that the draft hole is a little large for the size bowl...the screen keeps tobacco from being sucked in the mouth.
