Parker Pipe Co. was created in 1923 by Dunhill. After Dunhill acquired Hardcastle the two companies were merged (1967) in the Parker-Hardcastle Ltd.

Patent number 116989/17 is the only one which may appear on a Parker pipe prior to 1954. This was the year Parker and Dunhill both stopped stamping pat#.

The yellowish cloud around the logo comes from a reservation of this zone when buffing the stem. This color is due to the ebonite's oxydation.

Like Dunhill pipes, Parkers were also date coded but had a independant cycle.

Once again, this pipe illustrates the connection of the French pipe industry with the brands in London. It seems that the illustrated pipe has been crafted in the FBC workshops (St Claude, FR) who was responsible for Longchamp pipes production. Indeed the model has the Longchamp caracteristic features:

  • leather clad
  • oval bowl
  • typical twisted metalic stinger
  • stampings (same fonts, same text organization).

After having been leather covered in a Parisian workshop the bowls were sent to London where they were fitted with a Parker stem.
