An interesting Author shape, made in England by a maker that began in St. Claude France. Full restoration details are on the Reborn PIpes blog:

I could not find another sandblast example from this maker. Nor any with the twin brass dots stem logo.

Al,

Really nice job on the restoration. Congratulations on a neat find.

I personally haven’t seen another Delacour sandblast but here’s an old eBay listing pulled off of Worthpoint that has the twin brass logo and a hand cut stem:

Note that the small brass (if that is indeed the material) inlay has fallen out but the sign of its emplacement remains.
