Barling’s Make 4329 T.V.F. Sandblasted Straight Dublin Estate Briar Pipe [SOLD OUT]


Out of stock


Barling and Sons was originally founded in 1812 by Benjamin Barling and began as a family business making silver-adorned meerschaum pipes. In the early 20th century, however, the Barling family began to produce what the brand is today most famous for – expertly made briar pipes.

As you will be able to discover from MBSD’s guide on dating Barling pipes, the nomenclature on this one indicates that it was produced during the 1960-62 ‘Transition era.’ In other words, it was made by the Barling family themselves after B. Barling and Sons was acquired by Finlay & Co., a British tobacconists during the era. The pipe is actually quite an interesting shape for the time, being a saddle-stem Dublin with an oval shank. It bears a nice, crisp sandblast, but the rim has been left smooth polished. It’s a nice touch.

The condition is very good for the pipe’s age. The inner lip of the rim has some darkening and a spot of char, pushing the chamber ever so slightly out of round. The stem has a minuscule tooth mark, but is otherwise without any imperfections.
