Extremely Rare Collector's item

Original James Upshall Pipe made in late 1980s

Unique Giant Sized Freehand Pipe

A brief history - James Upshall pipes are hand-made in Tilshead, a little village in Wiltshire, deep in the English countryside. Here the noble art of hand-turning traditional English pipes continues. All pipes are created from supreme Plateau Briar-Root by a small and dedicated team of highly skilled artisans who love their craft.

The briar burls which grow wild in the Greek mountains are matured and naturally dried, a treatment reserved only for the cleanest and fullest Grained Plateau. Each briar is a piece of nature which has to be cut and worked accordingly to capture its true perfection.

The skilled turner will transform the cut block forever striving to obtain perfect straight grain bowls. After the name James Upshall has been engraved, the bowl is finally polished with swansdown.

James Upshall pipes are graded by various finishes ie bark, sandblast, black dress and smooth etc. Then by cross grain, flame grain, straight grain and, last but not least, the perfect high grade, which consists of dense straight grain to the bowl and shank. The latter being extremely rare. In addition, the price varies according to group size ie from 3-4-5-6 cm high approximately Extra Large. We also have the Empire Series which are basically the giant size, individually hand crafted pipes which come in all finishes and categories of grain. All pipes are individually hand carved from the highest quality, naturally dried Greek briar.

For Sale we have a pipe from the Empire Series a limited edition giant sized freehand individually hand crafted which is extremely rare due to the scarcity of large superior briar blocks.
