"It is quite a three pipe problem, ..."

  • The name "Prince of Wales" was used at times by GBD for a sub-brand.
  • Pipephil shows English made Prince of Wales which bear the Scottish flag (X-shaped cross representing the cross of the Christian martyr Saint Andrew, the patron saint of Scotland) as logo.
Also listed by Pipephil is a brand named P.O.W. attributed to a Scottish firm G.M. Frame. Now, if P.O.W. doesn't stand for "prisoner of war", this might be an indication that there are two different Prince of Wales productions.
  • Danish made semi-freehands stamped "PRINCE OF WALES" + "DANISH LINE" + "HANDMADE IN DENMARK". The stems, as usual for the bulk of such pipes, often as stitch in stems. Decorated with a white ring and a stylized Danish flag. (Were once mentioned as order production for GBD. - Unconfirmed!)
