Jelling Pipe Sandblasted Square Shank Apple (JLP171560)
Jelling was a Brick and Mortar store in Newark, New Jersey that closed its doors decades ago. They sold cigars, pipes, and pipe tobacco in abundance. As part of that inventory Jelling offered their own brand of "in-house" pipes. These were made by other factories and then sold to Jelling, although this particular shape definitely came from the Shoenleber factory.
Like most of the vintage Jelling pipes we acquired, this square shanked apple is incredibly practical. Light enough to clench, but a sturdy sitter, the bowl is complete with some pretty nice undulating ring grain. You really can't find a better vintage pipe than this.
