American Estates: John's Pipe (Los Angeles) Smooth Tomato
Product Number: 004-009-5760
The slogan from John's Pipe Shop Inc. was "When Smoking a pipe, smoke the best!" That's the bulk of the information I could dig up, that and to quote OTC Pipes: "John's Pipe Shop is no longer in business. They were still in business in the 1980's. How much longer after that, I don't know." Well, for some reason I have a sneaking suspicion that this pipe was created by Comoy because various small internet clues and a similar roundness in form, though I can't find this Tomato on their shape chart, so that may just be a bust. Just enjoy the fact that you have a nice, plump Tomato to smoke, that also comes with its own mystery for you to explore.
