“STUNNING PREBEN HOLM PRIVATE COLLECTION GRADE "A", MUST SEE!”
This truly is Preben Holm at his finest, wow. Preben passed in 1989 and was arguably the greatest Danish freehand carver of all time, the gold standard! His Private Collection pieces seen here are the pinnacle of his work, and the most coveted. "THE HIGHEST QUALITY BIRDS EYE WOODS HARVESTED IN 1700'S AND STORED FOR SUBURB UNMATCHED PIPES EVER' and/or stamped 200. Incredibly underrated and would give many higher grades a run for their money! It's classic Preben, flared out floral Dublin at heart with a long oval/rectangular rim beautifully carved and concave showing both craggy plateau and gorgeous smooth with a healthy sized chamber in the middle. It's pipe at 6 1/2" though modest in bowl size compared to other PC's. While to the rear the transition is pronounced to a "stepped" shank in about a half bend and is extended by a vulcanite mount that holds the original fancy vulcanite stem with slight fishtail bit. Finish is that warm and rich golden contrast we all know and love from Preben that highlights grain as well or better than any with this briar displaying 360 degree straight and flame grain with loads of birdseye on the rim! Clean throughout, an absolute gem from the late Holm that is simply not to be missed! Stem & pipe can be cleaned on request I have left as is since last used in 1985 by the original owner!
