Gordon Bruyere Smooth Apple (early 1900s)

Product Number: 004-003-0923

Well, I won't pretend it's pretty - the shape is pleasing but those fills are, to put it lightly, hard to miss. Nonetheless, this is a piece of pipe history, and thus, as we figure it, worth passing on to anyone who might wish to preserve it in their own collection. Truth be told, you're probably much more likely to find a survivor Dunhill or other pricier marque from this age; pipes like this were made in immense quantities, but they were also typically just smoked until they became to dirty to enjoy, then tossed and replaced. As is common to pipes of the period, the bit is narrow, with an eye-shaped cross-section. Another tell-tale feature is the bone tenon, likely a result of the maker being sparing in their use of vulcanite rod, which back then was a modern and costly material.
