New!  American Estates: Bertram (Washington D.C.) Smooth Bulldog (30)

Product Number: 004-009-5537

Though Bertram made many a modest smoker, like this broad-chambered straight Bulldog, in their heyday they were very well known, and could claim world leaders both famous and infamous among their customers. Unfortunately the marque, originally founded by German immigrant pipemaker Bertram Goldmann in the 1870s, went extinct in the 1960s, and in a rather dramatic fashion: their factory was burned down during the riots which followed Martin Luther King Jr.'s assassination.
