posted in: COMOY | 0
England, 1930s

An extremely rare finding! The Comoy’s pipe made in the 1930s and branded for one of the numberous tobacconists the most probably. You may compare the COM (MADE IN ENGLAND) and the shape number (331) to other Comoy’s pipes of that time to avoid any doubts.

The pipe markings are “B. B \ BEST BRIAR”, “MADE \ IN \ ENGLAND”, “331”. The length is 15.3 cm (6.02″), bowl’s height is 4.0 cm (1.57″). External diameter of the bowl is 4.6 cm (1.81″), internal diameter is 2.1 cm (0.83″). The depth is 3.0 cm (1.18″) and this pipe weights 40 gr. Briar, vulcanite stem, no filter. The chamber has a few not critical scratches made by a cleanig tool, but looks very moderately and accurately smoked. The stummel had a few small chips and indentations which were very carefully and reliabily patched during the restoration.
