English Estates: Comoy's Pebble Grain Billiard (298) (pre-1980) Tobacco Pipe

Product Number: 004-002-37102

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. This lean "298" from Comoy's approaches a Lovat-like sense of proportion, though its lengthier stem draws it more toward a Billiard. The bowl stands pert and upright, with straight walls reaching from the heel toward the chamfered rim. A slender oval shank extends out back and pairs to a saddle stem, the arrangement granting this piece a sleek profile. Comoy's Pebble Grain finish dresses the stummel in a crisp, hickory-stained sandblast.
