Anyone remember when Radice stopped T/B stems and Oil curing? scratch
Can't find a thing on the ole inter web and in Pipedia I think someone has deleted

I don't have the date, but recall that these changes occurred coincidently with R.D. Field discontinuing representation of Radice in the US. Luca Di Piazza now represents the brand internationally, I believe.

It's probably been close to ten years now.

Thank you sir but, I have several T/B Oil Cured Radice pipes dated 2007
so you would think it would be less then ten years. Could it have been seven?
Really interested in finding out the year.

Have you thought about writing the company? They probably would know.

Yes I have "E" but, thought instead of bothering them with a frivolous question
I'd see if anyone knew here first. Wink

I could be wrong, but wasn't Marty Pulvers associated with R.D. Field? Or was it W.C. Fields? In any event, he might know--and you wouldn't have to learn Italiano first.

I'd ask Luca, he is friendly and fluent in English. But getting an exact answer might be difficult. They probably had piles of these pipes around long after they separated from Field.
I believe but am not positive they were partners and many of their European buying trips are chronicled in NASPC's The Pipe Collector. Shocked

Thank you sir, I'll look through my volumes but, being I let my membership laps I may not have the one I need. 5)

Really interested in finding out the year.

I just chatted with Marty about this, and he doesn't remember the year either, but thinks it could have been 5-7 years ago. Time has a way of getting away from us sometimes, especially as more of it passes...

So, after a "duh" moment, I poked through my archives. According to an old email from December 2008, David stopped representing Radice 1st January, 2009, and Luca was likely to take over at that point.

My pleasure. And, indeed, dropping the oil-cured range was coincident with the change in distribution, so there were probably no new ones after 2009, though a few existing ones may have remained in inventories for a while.

With that said, I would imagine they'd be dated 2008, 09 or before though too. Wink
