English Estates: Comoy's Extraordinaire Sandblasted (129) (c.1930s-1950s)
Product Number: 004-002-19660
Large and sublime, this Apple understandably features Comoy's "Extraordinaire" stamp, meaning it's unusual or exceptional in some way, often with larger proportions. Let's call this one both. Crafted sometime in the 1930s, this "129" boasts an unusually tall bowl for an Apple, given the classic shaping style of the venerated English marques. The bowl is paired to a lengthy, streamlined shank-and-stem arrangement that provides balance and contrasts with the curvaceous bowl. This piece wears a dark, well-executed sandblast that reveals beautifully striated ring grain climbing from heel to rim. A fine-looking piece with lots of textural presence, this pipe is primed for a special slot in someone's collection.-Angela Robertson
