    Does anyone have a link or scans of Loewe catalogs from the mid 40s to mid 50s?

    Tobacco's a help because it clears the mind
    But like all your friends it is vilified
    They always say, the right amount's fine

    Thanks Dave, I always check pipe pages. Wish it was still updated.
    I'd love to see a full catalog from that era.

    This one dates to the mid sixties when WØL started import to Danmark ( see last page) as they did before the war.
    I got my first Loewe original Newlyn shape in april 1966 when they were new on the market and rather expensive for
    a young man.
    I also got two unsmoked from before the war and two older catalogs but I have no camera so I do not know how to take photos.

    Jensen, how do you like them?
    If you still have the Newlyn I assume it has worked well for you.

    I'm getting a freshly cleaned up Loewe Process straight Dublin with some VERY nice birdseye later today.
    According to Pipedia, the Process would seem to indicate a birth year in the early 50s.

    Process in 1946 catalogue retail price each 57/6 (silver mtd in case 75/9 to compare),
    Every bowl is chosen for some unique character in its grain.The interior is treated by the inimitable LOEWE PROCESS,
    which renders breaking in unnecessary.
    The briar will colour beautifully and become richer in tone as the pipe is smoked.

    ..........yes,I still have my Newlyn and it is in fine shape.

    That 1946 catalog states on the front page Est. 1856 and on page 3: Since Loewe opened his shop ninety years ago.......
    so 1946

    (date corrected to 1856/Al)

    Great info Jensen!

    I'll post up some pics later. It's a Chamberlian shape in the Process line.
    The stem tapers to a very narrow bit. Very old school and very comfortable.

    It's difficult to pick up all the delicate lacy birdseye on the sides. The cross grain sticks out easily though.

    That is an incredibly refined pipe, the simplicity of line, the elegant grain, and the lithe profile. No nonsense elegance.
