Identify vintage/classic pipe?

I love wood crafts/arts especially the classical/vintage look. But, how exactly to identify the old school pipes? By the brand, shape or by the briar?

I have found just posting a pic on here will generally help ID random unknowns

There are several classic schools of pipe-making: English, Danish, Italian, French, German, etc. The English pipe makers—Dunhill, Charatan, Barling, Comoy, GBD, etc.—manufactured the pipe shapes we generally think of when we think of classic pipes. You can easily Google pictures of their catalogues from the middle of the last century to get ideas.

And it could be a GBD by the stem logo.

Thank you for the info puffers! I wondered how do you guys can be so good and simply recognized the pipe and the maker as well. And some of you can recognized the briar very well. Salute!

I believed there must be a hint/clue to identify the pipes are real classic made. For example, we can identify classic/vintage furnitures obviously by its design and the woodworking joint normally without nails such as ‘Dowel Joint’, etc.

Eager to have more from the expertise like you guys!

Cheers!
