French Estates: Chacom Transvaal Smooth Apple (78) Tobacco Pipe

Product Number: 004-003-7875

The Chacom legacy is longstanding, with the Comoy family making pipes as far back as 1825 in the French village of Avignon. The Comoy marque's founder, Henri Comoy, was taken as a prisoner of war in Switzerland in 1870, where he met his cousins, the Chapuis. Here, the idea for a Chapuis-Comoy collaboration was born, which then became fully realized in 1922. This would lead to the "Chacom" marque, a portmanteau of the two family names. This "78" Apple from Chacom is a fetching showcase of Anglo-French shaping. It features a pert, plump bowl, with supple walls curving gracefully from the heel toward the softened rim to create a comfortable in-hand presence. Fashioned with a metal military mount, a balanced shank transitions from the bowl and meets a sleek tapered stem. The stummel is dressed in a rich chestnut stain that reveals handsome grain.
