ROLLIT ; it is absolutely identical to other Falcons, the frame probably cast by Presbar Products and certainly produced at the time of the possible trademark problem in UK
There are examples and leaflets from Canada of this pipe, George Hunt having a company there
This last one is a Falcon Made in England but has STANDARD stamped on the humidome
somewhere there may be a version with ALCO instead of Falcon

In July 2004, on Ebay, there was a solid 9 carat gold Falcon (weighing 2 ounces without the meerschaum lined bowl), with an amber mouthpiece, all in a calfskin covered presentation case which went for 175 ($330).six were made, the gold frame being made by Johnson Matthey

Bottom photograph shows the Rainbow set (the gilt bent is missing). The colours are offically red, blue, gilt, green, purple
The bottom variety is a matt finish, which seems to be a deliberate design feature and would have been one of the last to be cast in USA judging by the mould number

Most of the variants of Falcon are here on this site, but please click on this link to take you to the website of Merton & Falcon for current range of pipes. www.mertonandfalcon.co.uk
