Both are private label pipes made by Grabow before I started. The #19 prince is a Chadwick probably made 1960/1963.
The #86 bulldog is Briargate and based on the cleaner was made 1953/1957.

The bulldog has a German bit which is almost indestructable. In the late 30's Hitler wanted a material for vehicle tires and tank tread. One was made from vulcanite and a plastic of the day. Didn't work for vehicles because it was so hard that a light rain was like ice. Tank tread just busted off.
Some genius started making pipe stems from it and they are fantastic. Never oxadize, will barely mark. Wish I had a hundred more, but only 4.. ted
