    W.O. Larsen 122 Super

    Oops I did it again...another Larsen pipe.

    I'm kind of thinking Former. The 122 shape number is higher than any seen in the early '60's catalogs, so a new catalog shape after Former took over the shop in 1962. It also has the W.O. Larsen makers mark, as opposed to the earlier Larsen Copenhagen mark, which would further support Former as the designer/maker. I thought it was marked Select, but it arrived today and is marked Super.

    "The second period (Mid 1970's to the mid to late 1980's) is the most famous period, as this is the era of Teddy Knudsen, Tonni Nielsen, and Former Nielsen, along with the occasional pipe crafted by Jess Chonowitsch, Peter Hedegaard, PH Vigen, and a few others. These pipes were stamped "Larsen Hand Made in Denmark" with no "Copenhagen" stamping. The staining of the bowls were more varied than the era before."
