Misc. Estates: Hilson Bolero Sandblasted Rhodesian (40) Tobacco Pipe

Product Number: 004-008-9626

Hilson's history begins in 1846 in Bree, Belgium, when Jean-Claude Hillen (or John-Paul depending on the source) founded a trading company that focused on tobacco and tobacco-related goods. Hilson carved pipes for well over 100 years, and became exceedingly popular in Europe during the 1960s and 70s. However, Hilson was bought out in 1980 and moved production to the Netherlands where they continued to craft their iconic pipes. This "40" Rhodesian by Hilson features an oval shank-and-stem arrangement with a thin profile but a broad width, subtly balancing the composition. The stummel is dressed in a rustic sandblast with two scalloped sections on the flanks of the upright, muscular bowl.
