Gorgeous score there, Max! You can't go wrong with Winslows. I've got 7-8 of his, mostly Crowns. Magnificent smokes every one. One has THE best draw of any pipe I've ever had.

Prebens were always a dream of mine when I was working in shops eons ago when I couldn't afford them. Many trips around the sun later I've got at least 10, all excellent. I keep my eyes open for either his, God rest him, or any Winslow.

Thank-you, Bill! This is one of those semi-blind purchases that far exceeds one's expectations. The more I read about Mr. Winslow, the more I was like "aw this guy's craftsmanship is tooo cool!". You're fortunate to have such a nice collection. I doubt that I'll ever go after a Preben, but it's nice to have a carving from his top assistant from back in the day. Thank-ya for sharing that, Bill🙂👍

Beautiful pipe!
I ordered one from SP Europe several months ago, similar shape to yours in A grade made around 1985-1990, according to the dot on the stem. Was held in Europe for nearly 2 months due to COVID but started its journey about 2 weeks go! Hope to have it soon :)004-150-0342.4963.jpg004-150-0342_1.7149.jpg004-150-0342_3.7677.jpg

Thank-ya, Anthony!.. You've got a niiice one headin your way! Love the sweet flame grain and Birdseye, amigo!! Bummer about the hold-up. I have a pipe on it's way from Italy, which has been sitting in Germany for a few. Oh well, please keep her safe, authorities lol. My Cuban cigars used to get held up in Europe around Christmastime because of those whackos sending bombs disguised in ink cartridge packages. A$$holes were giving my vendor fits lol (but I digress). The first Winslows I was looking at were Grade A bent dublins. Absolutely stunning! Then I saw the pricing ahem, and found my new one down the list. It caught my eye so quickly that I didn't hesitate! As I relayed to another member, there was zero buyer's remorse after unboxing. Now those bent dublins are on my list, pricing be damned!😁 Allergies/congestion prevented an inaugural smoke again last night dangit, but I should be good later today. I hope your pipe arrives soon, Anthony! Please let us know when you receive it and how that beauty smokes!🙂👍

Thanks unclemax, hope your health gets better soon.

I am practically waiting next to the mail box for my pipe :) Although the photos don't show it my pipe is an estate and SP Europe often have good pricing on their estates (and free shipping for purchases above 100 euro!)

Aw you're welcome, Anthony. And thank-you.. dang seasonal allergies. Nice snag again on the Winslow. Great value to be had in Estate pipes! Hope it hits your mailbox soon. I just checked on my Ser Jacopo, and it's cleared customs in the U. S. of A🙏 Cheers to adding nice pipes to our collections! I'm very grateful😊58F87E43-B8F7-42C0-B280-7E46320970AC.jpeg
