Pre-Transition Barling's Make Pot in unsmoked condition. Nomenclature reads Barling's arched over Make, Ye Olde Wood, 273, T.V.F. Opposite side of shank reads Made in England, Exexel. All lettering in CAPS. Black acrylic saddle stem with the "Barling" cross weakly stamped with most of the white gone, making the rating 9.5 of 10. Comes in a Barling sock and box which I do not believe is the original.
