Anatomy of our Stamping

Anatomy of our Stamping

The diagram above shows our current logo stamp and a typical positioning of the year and grade stamps. The only other markings we tend to use are some form of Yule tag, on the rare occasions when we make Yule pipes.

The pricing below is for Ligne Bretagne Uniques.

Collector Grade

Every so often, I produce handmade pipes for the Talbert Pipes line which, for one reason or another, don't meet my standards to become a genuine Talbert. These are typically pipes with some minor cosmetic flaw of some sort, nothing that would impact their function or reliability. In cases where I don't wish to completely discard these "seconds", I will fit them with readymade stems from our Ligne Bretagne stock and sell them as one-of-a-kind Ligne Bretagne Collectors. Each pipe is priced individually based on grain and complexity of design, with prices typically running between $290 and $390.
