This is a stunning straight grain Lane era Charatan Distinction”XL size Dublin. It is stamped “”CHARATAN’S MAKE””/””LONDON ENGLAND””/””DISTINCTION”” on the top of the shank. To the left of this is a cursive “”L”” surrounded by circle-denoting a Lane era pipe. This is one of the larger Charatan pipes we have seen with very thick walls at 1/2 inch thickness. For a longer afternoon smoke; this is your pipe. The stem is in very good condition for its age and the bowl is very clean. This piece hasn’t been heavily smoked at all as you can see from the top images and is a rare treat for Charatan fans.
Pipe Length: 6 5/16 inches
