This belongs to forum member herbindave. He sure knows hoe to pick them out.

This thing is large, Group 6-ish with an excellent blast (bowl is 2 1/4" deep)

I didn't find out much about the brand, other than that they are a sub-brand of Dunhill.

Full restoration details are here:

I have 3 straight billiards, 2 blast, 1 smooth. Absolutely fantastic smokers.
Nice job on that resto.

Maybe made for a specific shop (Savory's ?) or not... but a commonly agreed upon second for Dunhill and thought to be a very good item.

I'm a firm believer in seconds. It's a whole study unto itself.

Oh yeah...excellent stem cleanup there RR!

The banter at this site is interesting as you go down the page re the different seconds by numerous makers.

I find the stem work on most seconds pipes to be lacking, particularly GBD and Comoys. (Pre-molded, plasticky, etc) . First line pipes from those two are still reasonable, so I quit searching for the seconds.

However, the stem on this one really impressed me.
