    Sasieni Royal Stuart shape 13

    I was looking in the pipe vault the other night and came across this one. A Royal Stuart shape 13, the Haselmere shape. I've always liked the shape, a grp 3 or so Dublin with a canted bowl, more so than the more upright, larger shape 71, the Victoria. I didn't take any before pictures, but I'm very happy with the way it came out. The pipe had a corkscrew style stinger (which I removed) so I think it's likely an older pipe (~ early 1950's). The inner rim bevel is an original detail.

    For comparison, shape 71, the Victoria, from the Old England line.

    Shape 13 does look more elegant due to the slightly canted bowl, but they are both great-looking shapes.
    I like Dublins.

    I also got one 13 in the Mayfair grade. No grain, three large putty fills. I bought it because I liked the shape.
    My 91 in the same grade is better with only a small fill and good grain and it have a longer shank and a smaller bowl.

    Is your "vault" under Gringotts? - They provide a secure and efficient service, or so it is written:

    I have a Royal Stuart shape 17; a big beast whose lines are not as elegant as your "13". It does have a 50's 'feel to it'. Can't find a pic for the mo.

    An early-1920s Sasieni One Dot shape 33 ...



    Same shape (not sure about size), but interestingly, it does not have the beveled rim.
