Description

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.

The ‘Fossil’ was the name adopted for sandblasted pipes during the later family era of Barling’s Make pipes. These distinctly craggy sandblasts would become one of the reasons for Barling’s renown, and would inspire countless carvers – perhaps most famously, America’s J.T. Cooke – to emulate such finishes. Though this Barling has a four-digit shape code, this code begins with a ‘1,’ making it a family era pipe.

The condition is good. The rim has seen better days, and shows a fair amount of darkening, but this will not impact its smoking properties. I imagine this will not dissuade Barling collectors too much either.
