English Estates: Comoy's Black And Tan Cherrywood (603) (R) (post-1980) Tobacco Pipe

Product Number: 004-002-37032

Progressing from boxwood to briar, the history of Comoy's pipe making is characterized by its strong familial ties. The marque's founder, Henri Comoy, took after his father Francois. Francois started fashioning pipes with his brothers in Saint Claude out of more rudimentary materials until he and his son Louis discovered the benefits of briar. In 1879, Henri brought his skills to London, where he would set up a factory and serve as a key figure in English pipe making while working alongside his sons and nephews. Compact and lightweight, this "603" Cherrywood from Comoy's makes for an exceptionally practical pipe. The bowl sits firmly atop a broad, flat heel, from which straight walls rise toward the rim. A sharply upturned shank makes a wide transition from the bowl, topped with a bent, tapered stem fashioned from cumberland. Courtesy of the Black and Tan series, the stummel wears a handsome chestnut stain revealing whorls of birdseye across the right flank.
