English Estates: GBD New Era Smooth Rhodesian (D) (28)

Product Number: 004-002-7078

GBD was originally a French marque, and even after becoming known as London-made, some stummels were evidently still turned in St. Claude. It shouldn't be such a surprise, then, to find this "London England"-stamped briar sporting one very French shape, that of a broad-chambered, compact-bowled, and very stout-shanked straight Rhodesian.
