New!  English Estates: Charatan's Make Executive (City of London)

Product Number: 004-002-8023

Charatan remained a family business from it's founding in 1863 up until 1960 - a pretty good stretch of time. The period immediately following is known as the "Lane era", and in an unusual case for these older marques, represent a post-family span of time that produced pipes still considered highly desirable by collectors. Previous to 1973, all Charatan pipes were made by hand, as this one was, though being hand-made does not necessarily limit a pipe's dating to the family or Lane era. The thing to look out for is the "City of London" stamp; this ran from the end of WWII up into the mid-1960s, readily confirming that a briar was indeed made during either of the two eras favored by collectors.
