    elementary my dear Watson! that looks suspiciously like the 'three-legged' Isle of Man symbol, there was one pipe maker - Manx Pipes, that closed around eight years ago.....but very occasionally I'm wrong! ;)

    That's the symbol of the Isle of Man. That's about all I know.

    The Manx Meers are worth looking out for on eBay if you're after an African Meer, Barlings and Pete's will alway's sell for loads a' money but sometimes the Manx one's slip under the radar and they smoke exactly the same.

    Thanks, I already have a Peterson Tawny De Luxe (surely made by Manx) which I got lucky and stole off the bay, it is one of my favorite/best smoking pipes...

    I would like to get at least one more with the actually Manx branding though...
