    WIMBLEDON - Made in England

    Took a shine to this pipe when I saw it the other day on the usual online site here. After a slight misunderstanding regarding the price the seller tonight was happy to sell it at its original listing price which works out around 13. Not a large pipe....a small pot maybe? The seller says it's in good used condition, we shall see when it arrives hopefully later this week.

    The sellers pics below.

    I say, Crawford. New balls please! Those slimline pots smoke fantastically well, they really do. Looks in very good nick as well.
    I'm sure I've seen those Wimbledon pipes mentioned in forums as a Comoy's line? Dave or jorgen will hopefully chime in.
    Well done mate! Pass the Pimms.

    Good play, Crawford! That's one sleek pot and I particularly like the white tennis racquet stamp on the stem.

    Sorry to hear you're having problems Simon. Oh...I see what you mean now.

    Like Russ, it was the tennis racket logo that really caught my attention...I like quirky things like that. As Dave said a GBD sub brand - I wouldn't class it as a 'second' . To smoke on the lawn at Wimbledon. Something which is no doubt outlawed nowadays. According to what I read the Wimbledon pipe brand name was sold to Dr Grabow in the 70's.

    Yes Thomas, now about to place an order for a Wimbledon tie.

    Received the pipe in good nick. Just had to clean the rim of some darkening, run through a couple of pipe cleaners soaked in rum. There's a bit oxidisation to the mouthpiece but I'm not too fussed about that. All in all I'm happy.
