England, 1960-70s

GBD is renowned as one of the most innovative manufacturers, having always offered a vast range of shapes and series while frequently introducing new designs. Naturally, GBD responded to the growing interest in Danish pipes in its own sophisticated manner. From the late 1960s until the late 1970s, GBD enlisted the expertise of Horry Jamieson, a former carver from Barling’s and an experienced freehand designer, to start new lines. As a result, the majority of these outstanding and highly collectible GBD Collectors and Unique pipes were crafted by Horry.

We have thoroughly inspected the pipe and can confidently state that it is unsmoked. There is no odor emanating from the chamber, shank, or stem, no signs of tar, and the bottom of the mortise is completely clear and clean. Although the bowl surface has a few minor scratches and dings, we opted to preserve the pipe’s original finish. As such, we polished the pipe, removed some oxidation on the stem, and coated the bowl with carnauba wax gifted to us by an old and dear friend many years ago. The pipe comes with its original box (which displays significant signs of storage) and an original pipe bag (in excellent condition).
