    I have acquired this pipe, I can't find anything about the stamping. The only marking is what you see.

    The stem is amber and it is chipped. Can this just be filled with clear super glue?
    The tenon is bone, how should I clean this?

    Thank you for your help.

    Wow- interesting! Is the bling silver?

    I'd clean the tenon with a damp rag. Dunno 'bout super glue for chips.

    I know that you believe you understood what you think I said, but I'm not sure you realize that what you heard is not what I meant.

    Interesting pipe for sure! I can't help with identifying it, but it is certainly unique.

    I think it is gold plated. It was not expensive, but I had a feeling it was quite old.
    The amber and bone, I have never dealt with before. The bit is an orific type bit.

    Thank you,
    Don

    I looked up logos on pipephil.eu and found that it might be a Sasieni Friar. If so, that should make that pipe even more of a keeper!

    I've seen a handful of other RFB pipes but don't know who made them. Not Sasieni though; almost everything about the pipe clearly antedates the founding of Sasieni by many years.

    From what I can gather from earlier threads, the orific button and bone tenon places this pipe in the pre-1920's. So, some company from around 100 yrs. ago.

    Yes, clear super glue will fix a chipped amber stem.
