Hello again everybody,
thanks to all again who assisted in february nicely to identify the CHARATAN EXTRA.
Just waiting for a little parcel with a dublin-shape charatan extra.
That will be my third little wonder.
Will post pictures on arrival.

Nevertheless there are other real good stories which sounds little bit like "Indiana Jones".
One of this is.....
Did anybody get the chance to "clean" a longtime closed tobacco-/ pipeshop ?
Crazy job like Klondike River, but I love it..
E.g. unsmoked Dunis and Charatans from the sixties... - orig. Dunhill tobacco (vaccum seems to be ok)
from Early Morning up to Virginia, Standard Mixture ......
Lovely Cesare, Savinellis, Butz, Peterson, Hilson.......
No idea what will be the next.
Will post picture and think about really good ideas, what to do...
 
Hello Al
located in Germany.
I will offer step by step more than 500. No idea, how many and no idea about all brands,
cause lots of closed boxes. But seems to be nice and nicer old n.o.s. from uk, italy, france, denmark.
Just looking for best ways to do, cause most of all i`m smoker and collector.
To sell all the pretty babies will be a new experience
Dod

Guten Morgan (CA time)....

Bitte: put your location in your Profile.
Why: It will save time for others as to where you live when you mention local stores, weather, tobacco prices, availability, regulations, location of photos, wildfires, air quality, etc. In many instances that saves time for those who read your posts, and for you in not having to reply to inquiries. .
How:
Under your avatar, (top right, left most of three symbols) you choose "Account Details", which brings up "My Account". "My Location" is halfway down. Whatever you're comfortable with- town, city, county, state. province, etc.

Hello Friends

just bought a Charatans Pipe "Extra".
A lovely Bent which is stamped only on left side:

CHARATAN`S MAKE
LONDON.ENGLAND
EXTRA 11

On stem the "C" runs in the "P" and is thin/ stem is the old one (no double comfort or saddle...)

Any known infos about this pipe welcome, because I only found one other Charatan stamped same way,
but the other owner has no helpful info about it.

I only know "Extra" as special mark for extra size on right side, but never saw this as a quality-level on left side.

Thanks to all and stay healthy

You might also find some useful information in the Ken Barnes Posts section above the forum page. Ken trained at Charatan, which was managed by his father. He later went on to co-found James Upshall with Barry Jones, Charatan's head carver.
There are two pdf documents, one for Charatan and one for Upshall, which contain Ken's posts over a period of several years. There's a lot of information to be found there that is not duplicated anywhere else.

thanks a lot !
The third EXTRA just arrived.
Lovely pipe - stem stamped CP, but looks like acrylic which is at least approx. 40 years later than EXTRA should be made..... perhaps a replacement stem.
