A (inside circle)


Artisan: Jeffrey A. Burt-Gracik (born 1979) began carving pipes in 2004 while he still was student and went full-time pipe maker in 2006.


  • The first number counts back to the first J. Alan pipe made.
  • The 2 digit number indicates the year of manufacture.

i.e. 231 08 = the 231th J. Alan Pipe in existence was crafted in 2008.

No grading except for exceptional pipes which are stamped with a wave.

(Left side) Jacobean, De Luxe (Right side) 3

According to Wilczak & Colwell, op. cit. Jacobean could be a French label (La Bruyere) or an English one (Masta and/or Josiah Brown). Given the logo on its stem (JB) the English origin of this pipe seems more probable all the more since the model # "3" in the Masta chart tallies quite well with this piece. Jacobean could thus have been crafted by Masta and retailed by Josiah Brown.

An early line (prior to Ferndown) of Leslie Wood was named "Jacobean". See the stampings here.

Size markings: Checkmate indicates a size larger than usual.

Pipes with the grades Jack, Queen or King may be stamped with a number from 1 to 100. These are the best 100 of all the pipes made in one given year.

Dating: some time in 2011 Tonino Jacono started to stamp the year of manufacture with a 2 digit number (12=2012). The same year a silver logo appeared on the mouthpieces.
