Though it's probably not that
pre-1980, this Orlik's lines call to mend the easy, broader yet fuller bends often seen in British pipes, and Petersons in particular, made during the very early 1900s. It's not quite there, mind you; there'd have to be some bend continuing upward in the shank from the transition. Nonetheless, it is more reminiscent of that older way of doing things than all but a very few present-day shapes I can think of.
