    on these two pipes. The first is labeled "The Humidor" on the shank and has no other visible markings. It is almost identical to the Mastercraft Popular that I posted pictures of here -> https://pipesmokersforum.com/community/threads/first-estate-clean-up.20488/ . I suspect this may have been a give away but I have no good info.

    The second is a Sasieni Windsor (badly in need of cleaning), I'm mainly interested in when this pipe might have been made and where it fit in the Sasieni world. It stamped on the bottom "Made In England" followed by "Sasieni Windsor" then "London Made" and at the end of the shank "53"

    Thanks, It's actually not that small of a pipe. Here's another photo to give perspective. I'll probably get it cleaned up tomorrow.

    that is a duel purpose rack. Protects the pipe from falling over and protects it from thieves.

    The Sasieni Windsor was probably made in the 60's or 70's, I think. If the "Made in England" is in an oval shape, then it's usually 40's and 50's. "London Made" stamping comes later.

    Made in England is in an oval right at the bottom of the bowl. London made is near the end of the shank.

    Thanks for the info, I spotted another Sasieni I have while looking through the brochures. I also have one of the Litewates that I picked up in this same lot. I think it's in pretty good shape also. I'll have to give it a closer look tomorrow.
