@msmith1986 Years ago, Tinderbox had a basket of cheap pipes that said either "Italy" or "Irish Second". Seems they were notable brands, like Peterson, but with minor cosmetic blemishes. I have two Irish Seconds and an Italy I love.

I've been known to give people a piece of my mind. Here lately, I'm questioning if I have enough left to share.

Maybe closer to a Rhodesian than a Bulldog at least IMO, either way itís pretty rare to see either one without bead lines.
If the factory gave documentation stating that itís a Bulldog I could accept it, thereís a lot of hardcore purest that would argue itís not. Bead lines and a diamond shank are traditional but thereís not really any set rules either.

Especially with Charatan, im goingnto go with freehand, as thats what the box designates the shape as, I had previously overlooked that, and was goingnsimply from what the seller had stated on fleabay. Im no expert in the brand, but I believe this to be made between 1955 and 1960 from online research!

Looks very similar to my Rhodesian minus the line around the top of the bowl. Very nice find.

And yes.... I have a problem! Lol.... Online shopping for tobacco/accessories has become an outlet for temporary overwhelming life events! Although if fiscally responsible celler stocking is the worst I do, there's much to be thankful for!
