English Estates: Comoy's Specimen Straight Grain Billiard (436) (c.1950s) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 004-002-31874
The years between 1950, when the marque was first founded, to 1980, when the company changed ownership, are widely considered by many pipe-enthusiasts to be Comoy's golden years, and the pipes fashioned during that time frame are prized and highly sought after. This "436" Billiard comes from that time period, dated as it is to sometime in the 1950s, and it showcases the refined, understated shaping style that marks a great deal of Comoy's pipes. It pairs a tall, slightly canted bowl to an elongated shank and an abbreviated tapered mouthpiece, lending it a Liverpool-like profile. The overall form is lightweight and streamlined, and it's presented in a stunning smooth finish that showcases fine wisps of flame grain on either flank of the bowl.--Davin Hylton
