English Estates: Comoy's Blue Riband Poker (157) (1950s–1980) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 004-002-34622
This Poker from Comoy's is part of the highly sought-after and very collectable Blue Riband series. Composed of the best-quality pipes Comoy's produced, any pipe marked Blue Riband is sure to be a thing of beauty, and this piece no exception. Placing a supple bowl atop a flattened heel, this "157" is a softer rendition of the classic shape, and quite rare to find as part of the Blue Ribband series. Out back, a slim round shank joins a tapered vulcanite stem, making this both a fine Sitter and clencher. The Blue Ribband's rich stain reveals stunning flame grain and birdseye on either flank of the bowl.-Gabriel Bass
