American Estates: Owl Shop Smooth Lovat
Product Number: 004-009-12506
The Owl Shop was an American tobacconist located in New Haven, CT, that, like other tobacco shops, sold private label pipes made by various marques. Typically, they hewed closely to classic English shapes, as seen here by this compact take on the Lovat. A Billiard bowl sits perched on the end of a round shank and is followed by an abbreviated saddle stem, complete with an image of an owl balanced on a tree branch with a feather in its mouth. Streaks of cross grain adorn the flanks and the flattened underside ensures this piece will sit stably on flat surfaces. Hard to beat a classically inclined briar like this at a reasonable price point.- Jeffery Sitts
