Long time ago, when we began our project we restored and published here a Colonel Henry Fraser lovat pipe.

The pipe was lucky indeed. It was the firts pipe we have sold abroad, many people are still looking for this classical lovat at our site and search engines know that lovat requests should be forwarded to

So it was a question of honor to replenish our store with some more lovats and to update our information about this pipe.

The lovat shape was initiated in early XX century and they say Colonel Henry Fraser, Lord Lovat smoked such pipes so the name was adopted in his honour. Several sources of information state that Gerald Grundging & Company stamped the name of Lord Lovat on the pipes of this shape. Another sources claim that BBB invented lovat pipes and produced lovats both in the UK and France. It’s easy to believe: BBB was integrated with A. Oppenheimer & Co. Ltd in 1920s with production facilities in both countries.

The pipe markings are “COLONEL HENRY FRASER \ LOVAT \ MADE IN FRANCE”. The length is 12.3 cm, bowl’s hight is 4.5 cm. External and internal diameters of the bowl are 2.9 cm and 1.8 cm. The depth is 3.7 cm and this pipe weights 30 gr. Briar, vulcanite stem, no filter. The chamber has been protected with the break in paste.
