English Estates: GBD Prestige Smooth Apple (9487) (pre-1980) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 004-002-33489
A sturdy variation of the classic bent Apple, this piece by GBD is a fine example of the English marque's work. Featuring a pert, curvaceous bowl at the fore of a tapered square shank, this pipe offers an engaging contrast between smooth curves and soft ridges. Completed by an acrylic saddle stem, this piece is ideal for clenching, thanks to its relatively demure stature. Dressed in the vibrant, honeyed hues of the Prestige series' finish, this piece showcases some truly excellent grain throughout its stummel, with cross grain through the middle and birdseye at the flanks.-Gabriel Bass
