England, 1960-70s

A very high grade GBD pipe marked both “Prodigy” and “Straight grain” made approximately between the late 1960s and late 1970s most probably by Horry Jamieson (ex Barling carver), who was experienced in freehand design and created many amazing “Collector” and “Unique” pipes for GBD. A decent response to Danish artisans!

The pipe markings are “(GBD) \ PRODIGY \ STRAIGHT GRAIN”, “LONDON. ENGLAND”. The length is 16.8 cm (6.61″) and the bowl’s height is 6.7 cm (2.64″). External diameter of the bowl is 4.6 cm (1.81″), internal diameter is 2.4 cm (0.94″). The depth is 5.1 cm (2.0″) and this pipe weighs 74 gr. Briar, vulcanite stem (wit the slightly corrected button, but you can hardly find the trace), no filter.  The pipe was moderately smoked and well preserved.
