    Larsen Copenhagen Super 120

    From the weekend. I've been looking for an example of this shape for a few years, they don't come up for sale often. Followed the auction all week, ready to bid whatever it took to win. Watching it Sunday, I began to have second thoughts, "...it's a sandblast, it looks too red..." was going to give it a pass. The bid stayed around $49, and then I told myself "if it sells for peanuts, you'll kick yourself!". Closed at $91, which is like getting it for half price! Shape by Sven Knudsen, it can be seen on page 4 of the 1963 catalog.

    Nice snag, Dave! Nothing worse than regret-- you did the right thing. That's a big pipe, no? Unusual for you.

    Your perseverance paid off with a great pipe.

    I'd say long, but I don't think the bowl is much larger than shape 70.

    Great pipe - very stylish. I could look at that catalogue website all day.

    I had that one in the watchlist -- didn't plan to bid, but for whatever reason just liked it. Glad you got it. I love that style, too.
