Rattray's: Emblem Brown (155) (9mm) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-599-3857
Similar to Rattray's "105" shape, the Scottish marque's "155" design is a bent variation of the classic Rhodesian, featuring a Bulldog bowl but trading a diamond shank for one of smooth, circular cross section. The "105" is a more squat and rounded iteration; whereas, this "155" presents as taller, the bowl tapering more dramatically and poising the beadlines higher for a more noticeable transition. Such shaping lends this pipe a certain Calabash-like disposition, a motif reinforced by the sinuous S-curve only with the Rhodesian's tapered rim as opposed to the Calabash rim's more domed aspect.
The defining feature of Rattray's Emblem pipes is their scalloped, metal accent, offering vibrant flash and a sleek, angular aesthetic in profile. Designed over 25 years ago, these special accoutrements were crafted to resemble cigar bands, replete with Rattray's triskel logo along the top. After being discontinued for a number of years, Emblem pipes returned in 2021 all in smooth finishes, with this particular example wearing a deep, mahogany stain for alluring grain definition.-Truett Smith
