Early Barling’s Make, Pre-Transition Sandblasted Pot 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 explained in the MBSD guide on dating Barling pipes (which can be found on the main MBSD page), this particular pipe is not only from the highly coveted Family Era, also known as the Pre-transition Era, of Barling’s manufacture – it’s also from very early on in the Family era. As there’s very little by way of stamping aside from the Barling’s Make nomenclature, this pipe will have been made prior to World War II, while the saddle stem indicates that it was made some time after 1936. It’s a simple, relatively small pipe, but those who are familiar with Barlings will know just how good of a pipe it is.

The condition is remarkably good. Three quarters of a century old, give or take, and yet the stem is near-immaculate and the finish is unblemished. This is a special one.
