English Estates: The Guildhall Sandblasted Lovat (210) (by Comoy's) Tobacco Pipe

Product Number: 004-002-37091

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 would bring 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. This "210" Lovat made for the Guildhall by Comoy's encapsulates the shape's archetypal form with its carefully measured design. The bowl stands pert and upright, with straight walls rising from heel to rim. Out back is a round, protracted shank punctuated by an abbreviated saddle stem. Dressing the stummel is a crisp, hickory-stained sandblast that reveals undulating growth rings around the bowl.
