I'm wondering if anyone has information about a mark, "Chelsea," stamped on a "Made in France" billiard I just picked up. The stem has four drilled holes in a diamond pattern; the inserts have fallen out. The pattern is roughly Sasieni, but has been sloppily done; the triangle is irregular so I doubt Sasieni had anything to do with the pipe.

I bought the pipe because the grain is exceptional: extremely tight with lots of growth rings . . . clearly an old, large burl.

Any thoughts on this one?

Have only seen one Chelsea pipe that was made in France. That too was not made well. Poor stem fit and the chamber was drilled way off center.
Only info online, did you read it and the restoration.....
