French Estates: Jeantet Jumbos Smooth Billiard Tobacco Pipe

Product Number: 004-003-7949

Jeantet is a French brand that was founded in Saint-Claude around 1775 by the Jeantet family, making it one of the oldest pipe making marques in existence. In 1807, production began on parts for other pipes which were then sold to other companies, though in 1858 they started crafting their own briar pipes. Their production grew considerably in the coming years, employing 51 people by 1890, and continued to grow under the supervision of Maurice Jeantet, who expanded the physical space of the brand's factory and restructured the business. As the years continued, Jeantet continued to find success with their pipes, modernizing their manufacturing techniques and crafting tens of thousands of pipes a year at their peak. Jeantet has since been acquired by the Cuty Fort Group, and all of their current production pipes are made by Chapuis-Comoy. This Billiard is a robust piece from the brand, coming from their Jumbos line and featuring a thick shank that ebbs out of a wide transition to meet a sleekly tapering stem of black vulcanite. The bowl here stands atop a rounded heel and cants forward slightly as it grows softly tapering walls that reach toward a flat rim. Dressed in a deep, rich stain, the stummel showcases plenty of handsome grain to appreciate, and it includes a flat bottom for easy resting during a smoke..
