|Orlik Golden Contrast #615266
|Because the "Orlik" is in a straight line, and in all caps, and be-
cause the "Made in England" is also in a straight line and in all
caps, this should be a pre Cadogan (pre 1980) Orlik. I'm not
entirely positive. Still, it's a good, solid pipe, with touches of
that rugged, thick early English pipe style (see Leeds era
Ben Wades, or even more recent George Huybrecht pipes for
other examples of what I'm referring to). This is as much
Rhodesian as it is Bulldog. Notice on the photo showing the
bottom of the pipe the little white, miniature Castello logo,
implant. Wonder what that is. The briar is not fill-free, but they
are small and minimal. The stem is pristine & the rim does show
a touch of wear, but not more. Open draw. Takes a cleaner.
5.4" long, bowl 1.65" tall. Weight: 1.5 oz., 44 grams. $45.
