▲ (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.
Josiah Brown Ltd. (tobacconist) 7 Market Street Nottingham, Nottinghamshire (closed down).

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.
