English Estates: BBB Freestyle Smooth Bulldog (403)

Product Number: 004-002-8355

"BBB" stands for "Best British Briar", and has the singular distinction of being the first pipe ever to have a registered Trade Mark, in 1876. I have handled more than a few BBB pipes that were made just prior to the turn of the century (back when they were still "Blumfeld Best Briar", after founder Louis Blumfeld). This one is a relative youngster, but sports a fine Bulldog shape (if not the finest grain).
