Barlcay-Rex Tobacconistsest. 1910 Today we have available a beautiful vintage pipe crafted in Birmingham, England! At first glance, this full-bent pipe appears to be an old Peterson. The proportions and degree of bend certainly conform to Peterson shapes, but the little branding that is visible cannot confirm this, and the stem lacking the iconic 'P' further negates the hypothesis. This is, however, a pretty little pipe with no knicks or fills on the walls of the bowl. There is some knicking on the rim where a lighter was obviously rested during lighting. There is also a sterling silver band that places the pipe's manufacture in Birmingham, England.
