English Estates: Comoy's Silver Shadow Smooth Bent Pot (1466) (post-1980) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 004-002-34981
In 1825, Francois Comoy and his brothers began making clay and boxwood pipes in St. Claude, France. However, in 1848, they discovered the vastly superior smoking qualities of briar and began fashioning pipes exclusively out of the hearty burl. Then in 1879, Francois's son Henri moved to London to set up a small workshop, which quickly grew in size as the demand for briar pipes exploded. Despite their French origins, Comoy's became a progenitor of the English pipe-making tradition, and their venerated pedigree and reputation for high-quality made them one of the most popular English marques of the 20th Century and beyond. This bent Pot is handsome example of Comoy's traditional style, featuring a chestnut smooth finish and a gleaming Silver Shadow stem.--Zach Podl
