Big Ben: Elegant Tan (499)

Product Number: 002-597-0192

The simple lines and light proportions of Big Ben's Elegant series are a throwback to the long-stemmed clay pipes of old. Amongst the upper classes, possessing something so delicately made (they were clay from bit to rim, remember) was a sign of wealth, but for the common man such pipes made convenient "rentals"; they'd be hung in taverns, and between users the last inch or so of the stem would be broken off. Today they still make for fine-looking pipes, and on the practical end, one well suited to enjoying with a good book by keeping the bowl out from between you and the page.
