Dating english tinned tobacco
There's an intriguing tobacconist right around the corner from my apartment, and when the time comes, I'll consult with the merchant. Another reason why I am saying only 1 briar is that, you are likely to do terrible things to this first pipe. While you are a new pipe smoker (and this period lasts untill you can pack a pipe correctly on the first try without having to think about it too much) you are only allowed to smoke this pipe once every 48 hours.
But in the mean time, I'd love some tips from my fellow dopers. I know there are several important variables, notably the length of the stem, and the size of the bowl. If you follow my (IMHO) very good advice your pipe should be fine, but you might do terrible things to it anyway. Don't spend more than , but get yourself something better than the cheep Dr. I will be back with some specific brand recommendations later. In between smokes you clean it and let it rest and dry out.
I just had a baby and tobacco smoke is bad for the youngun so I am taking a year or two off.
(Let's limit this thread to the discussion of tobacco pipes only, please.) I am currently on a pipe smoking hiatus.
For this cataloguing system, we suggest using Oswalds (19-42, figure 3G and 4G) Simplified General Typology for attempting to type pipe bowls that are complete enough to match the forms he provides.
While we recommend this reference as the most comprehensive, some archaeologists (including the DAACS initiative) prefer Atkinson and Oswalds (1969:7-12, figure 1 and figure 2) London-derived typology for its detailed approach to 17th-century pipes.
That said I do have thoughts on what a beginner should have.
I am, because of this, unfortunately not on the cutting edge with my knowledge of what is available anymore.
Archaeologists analyze multiple clues to date and identify the pipe maker including a careful combination of archaeological site context, bowl style and form, pipe stem bore diameter, style and placement of the mark itself, and place of manufacture. Impressed into clay tobacco pipes are bits of data that have fueled endless research avenues since the earliest days of archaeology on historic sites excavated on both sides of the Atlantic Ocean. This crowdsourced database focuses on just one bit the remains of the marks of the pipe maker or a preferred symbol permanently affixed to the product. We are most interested in rarer and high grade tins because we can get common or mid-grade tins pretty easily.
If you believe you have tins or tobacciana that we might be interested in, then please contact us via email, phone, or use our contact form.
