Charatan Models & Shape Information for the Collector.


In my hunt for information on the Charatan’s Make Distinction Dublin that I worked on recently I came across this helpful list of models and shapes of Charatan’s Make pipes. It was listed on reddit and it is actually the first list I have seen presenting the shapes and models available. I thought it would be worth posting here for quick reference. Here is the link to the original post. https://www.reddit.com/r/PipeTobacco/comments/z9knr/charatan_models_shape_information_for_the/ Thanks to the original poster of this on reddit. — Steve

    Steve, thanks for posting this. It is always a pleasure to get information on pipes I have had for years but just haven’t checked into them. I have a 402 and 420 both Lane Era pipes that I have had for years, both estate pipes. Great pipes!
