OK, it’s 2018 and hard to believe I find a pipe marked D&C with loads of engraving. The end of the stummel has this marking and other British hallmarks which I cannot read from the photos, the Amber Stem is capped with silver, it comes in its own brown leather hinged case with a yellow-green velvet lined interior. The shape is a Bulldog shape and to top it all off it was made in 1913 and has never been smoked! I will of course dig further but if anyone knows what British Pipemaker used D&C as its marking I’d appreciate knowing, thanks in advance.

Not only is that a slice of history, it's one helluva great looking pipe! And unsmoked you say? Wowsers!

Shocked


Cheers,

RR

The engraving on the sterling “bands” reminds me of that done in India.  The dates certainly are covered by British Colonial rule.

Also of interest re the hallmarked band initials. May or may not be related.

I think it might be likely that the B&C or B&G stamping might refer to the company that did the silver work instead of the Briar pipe.

Wowsers!!! That is an amazing piece of history you found! Wish I could shed some light on the maker but I'm afraid I'm at a complete loss. Best of luck in identifying it.
