Butz-Choquin A Metz Origine Smooth (2)

Product Number: 004-003-0814

This design is a recreation of the original Butz-Choquin pipe, the very first style produced under the name all the back in 1858. Though it's not that uncommon find modern versions of these long-stemmed, silver-mounted pieces, newer examples sport acrylic stem-extensions. This one, however, is a somewhat rarer, post-1950s specimen, sporting a goose bone extension, in place of the original's (circa 1800s to early 1900s) albatross bone. Though there is no hallmark on the mountings, our best guess is that it is ".80" silver, i.e. an 80% silver alloy.
