New!  English Estates: Corinthian DeLuxe Smooth Bulldog (Sutliff San Fransisco) (237)

Product Number: 004-002-7435

Corinthians were made in England, and then often stamped with the name of the retailer that purchased them for resale. The overwhelming majority of Corinthians which I have run across were emblazoned with the Grant's Pipe Shop stamp. This Corinthian straight bulldog, however, wears the Sutliff marque.

The Sutliff Tobacco Company was founded in San Francisco in 1843 and, in addition to their tobacco processing and blending, began to retail cigars and pipe tobacco directly to the public. Sutliff was developed its tobacco manufacturing to the point that it was eventually acquired by Consolidated in the 1960s. The store (proper) became Grant's Pipe Shop; a much loved landmark that was forced out of tenancy just last year (curse all bureaucrats). My best guess (emphasis on 'guess') is this pipe was produced sometime between the late 40's and mid 50's, and boasts a downright decent mix of wind driven grain and birdseye.
