I succumbed to my first Sasieni, a Four Dot Walnut "Grosvenor" bulldog.  Dave Need had it at a 15% discount, so my will power to save for Richmond crumbled.    It's a Four Dot with a town name, so it was made before 1979.  If anyone has more specific info, chime in.

Reading the Stephen Smith article, it appears that this is a Family era pipe, made between 1946 - 1950 According to the article, during that time, they added "London Made" and the finish "Walnut", under Sasieni Four Dot.

Riff,
I have 6 Sasieni's, 5 I bought back in the 70's and one my father bought when he was in London after the war in '46 and it is a "Four Dot Walnut" Grosvener as yours only in an Apple shape. They made some FINE, FINE pipes back then using nice old briar and ALL of mine smoke well and my fathers is my fave Apple! Looks like you got a nice one, enjoy ! Razz

Thanks mobla, I was hoping you might chime in. From what I've read this is a transition piece made from '46 to '79 and probably can't be dated more specifically. I've never smoked a Sasieni but given the repuation (and your comments), I'm stoked to give it a try.
