Astley’s of Jermyn Street opened their prestigious shop way back in 1860 as an outlet for their superb manufacturing of smoking pipes for British royalty and London gentry alike. At that time they were literally just down the road from the Charatan’s shop, and for years they competed to produce a better standard of pipe. Whilst Charatan changed hands and was sold to Lane in the U.S., Astley’s continued with his High Grade pipe sales by supplying some of the best examples of British manufacturing to pipe connoisseurs around the world! Astley of Jermyn Street was an extremely exclusive and famous shop and many pipe smokers made visiting the shop a must when arriving in London, myself included I must say! The shop always commanded extremely high prices for his much sought after specimens! Astley were renowned for selecting only the highest grade finish of briar pipes. This Super High Grade Rhodesian briar pipe was made exclusively for the Astley Pipe Company by Dunhill pipe manufacturers and has been finished in a transparent light natural staining over 360 degrees of cross grain and bird’s eye to the bowl and diamond shank. This pipe normally retails for £350.00 so this is a great opportunity for the smoker/collector to purchase a High Grade pipe at E-bay prices. The Hand Cut Cumberland diamond tapered mouthpiece by Colin Fromm bears the crisp and well defined white A logo and HAND CUT on the underside. The crisp and well defined nomenclature on the side of the shank reads ASTLEYS – 109, JERMYN ST. LONDON. This pipe will last for a lifetime, hence the lifetime guarantee.
