Wonder if Tad Gage knows that this beauty's available? I would be all over it but have other commissions in the works right now. Please take a moment to check it out and read the question & answer box below the listing. It isn't like me to get this worked up over a briar! What a pipe! My, my, my what a pipe!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

OK, I thought my latest pipe bidding on eBay was weird. Damn pretentious pipe smokers!

It's the Unfinished Symphony of Barlings!

Somehow, I'm reminded of the man who found an enormous mountain of horseshit in his yard, and with a big smile started digging through it, saying, "There's got to be a pony in here somewhere."

C'mon, Dock. I'm sure he'd swap you a couple Bangs for it if you don't have the cash right now.

Or they found a Barling in the box and the rest of them had chambers and a bit so they must be Barlings too. No reason to get too caught up on the details. Laughing

I could be mistaken. I don't think a brand new barling in the box wit 3 one hundred dollar bill would be worth $390.00. Correct me if i am wrong!!!
Thank You Danish Pipe Guy for the heads up on being careful what I bid on.

There are Barlings that are worth some dough.. Unfortunatly an unmarked pipe is an unmarked pipe, regardless of what it was found with. I don't care if it comes with a pic of the good Mr Dunhill's rotted corpse grasping it with in a death grip in one hand and a file in the other.. Its still just an unmarked pipe..

Got a giant laugh out of this thread Dock! Speaking of Barlings and Tad Gage though, I showed him one of my Fossil Pots at Richmond last year and he commented on the rarity of the pipe, saying that he has never seen one with the stampings that mine contain. I was told by members of my pipe club that it must be quite rare if such a comment came from Tad. I will look forward to showing the pipe mentioned to you at the Newark Show Dock! Take care!

I just don't know what to say. I will have to make a point to avoid that seller. Or maybe I can sell him my cobs and tell him they are stanwells, since I have them in the same rack and all.

It's a work of art. Unfortunately Art sucked at pipe making and went back to manufacturing widgets.

Looks like the guy doesn't know squat and figured for a couple bucks to list it, he'd roll the dice. Basketball

No, that is not a Barling !!!! It is obviously a Dunhill from 1343 B.C. as per the date code. I wish these EBAY sellers would get it right !!!
