Estate Pipes: English Estate: AGE Smooth Bent Billiard with Silver Band (1921)  

Product Number: 004-002-7620

The Beardmore-built R36 class airship (the first to carry a civil registration, though she was originally designed for the Royal Navy) takes flight;; the reconstructed Southwark Bridge is officially declared opened by King George V; Frederick Soddy wins the Nobel Prize in Chemistry "for his contributions to our knowledge of the chemistry of radioactive substances, and his investigations into the origin and nature of isotopes" - the year is 1921, and, along with much else, this rather dapper AGE bent Billiard was born. It bears a condition of 4.5/5, which is pretty impressive, considering the amount of service that it has probably provided. At ninety-two years of age, it's outlived both Frederick Soddy and the R36 by a long shot, though the Southwark Bridge, at least, is still around. (You may have seen it playing an important role in the final scenes of Lock, Stock & Two Smoking Barrels).
