I included this in a blog that I just posted on a New Old Stock (NOS) WDC Wellington that my brother found (https://rebornpipes.com/2016/12/23/when-he-opened-the-sterling-hall-hand-made-pipe-box-i-did-not-see-what-i-expected/). It came in a cream coloured Sterling Hall Hand Made Pipe Box that had the Briarcraft B logo in a shield in the left corner over Aged Imported Briar Root in the lower left corner. In the lower right corner it read Inlaid Sterling Silver. On the silver coloured inside cover of the box it read Sterling Hall over Hand Made. In the bottom of the box was a pipe sock with the same stamping as the cover of the box other than it also read A Product of Briarcraft.
I took photos of the pamphlet that was included with the original Sterling Hall pipe. It gives directions on breaking in your new briar as well as a small shape chart in case you are tempted to order another pipe. It is a good read and I had to chuckle when I saw the prices. I wanted to share it with you all! Enjoy.
