English Estates: Comoy's Blazon Rusticated Bent Billiard (42) (pre-1980) Tobacco Pipe

Product Number: 004-002-37318

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, who 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 "42" bent Billiard exemplifies classic Anglo-French shaping standards and a distinct presentation. The bowl stands pert and upright, with its plump walls paired to a lifted shank via a tight transition. A smartly bent, tapering stem of black vulcanite meets the shank, offering a comfortable jaw-hanging posture. The stummel wears a striking partial rustication, featuring sections of smooth briar juxtaposed against carved marks. In addition to offering a variety of textures for the hand to enjoy, the stummel is dressed in a dark walnut stain.
