Super Handmade Vintage W.o Larsen Denmark Oom Paul Briar Estate Pipe Pipa Pfeife

Click here now to buy on eBay!

Here we have for auction a very fine vintage "Super Handmade" 110 briar estate pipe in the bent 'Oom Paul' shape, crafted by master Danish pipe-maker "W.O. Larsen". The tan briar has a superb rustic, sandblast finish.
"W.O. Larsen was one of the most famous tobacco shops in Copenhagen, with a beautiful store located on Copenhagen's famous "Walking Street." During the flowering of the Danish pipe in the '60's, they first began retailing pipes by such carvers as Sixten Ivarsson, Sven Knudsen, Poul Rasmussen, and Brakner"-Pipedia
The stem is quite clearly hand-cut, as the end is a little 'wonky' (see photo 10). There is also a very small,very thin split on the end of the stem (just about visible in photo 9).
Aside from this the pipe has been only lightly smoked and is in very good condition.
There is just a very light dusting of carbon in the chamber, and some darkening to the bowl rim.The stem fixes very securely to the shank, and air flows through the pipe freely.
On the top of the shank is "Larsen" over "Copenhagen".On the bottom is model number "110" then "Super" over "Handmade", followed by "Made in Denmark".
Please note: the pipe stand is not included in this auction.

Thoroughly cleaned and ready to enjoy.Sold as seen.
