English Estates: Loewe & Co. Centurion 'Inverness' Smooth Lovat (1956-1968)
Product Number: 004-002-17804
There was a trend by which some English pipemakers stamped certain designs with the names of cities instead of shape numbers. In this Loewe & Co. Lovat, the Scottish town of Inverness earned the designation. Shape-wise, this vintage piece showcases perfect, traditional proportions in about a Group 3 or 4 size, all highlighted in a stunning show of cross grain and birdseye.-Truett Smith
