The seven-pointed design of the stars on this Pipe by Lee's stem indicates this is from the marque's earlier production. This, however, is not a tremendously helpful bit of information, given that I've yet to find a reference indicating exactly when
this brand was extant. Judging by the well-defined style of contrast finish and quality of briar, I'd hazard to guess it was post-WWII. In the end, I don't suppose it matters all that much, though, as classic shaping like this never really goes out of style.
