Genod brand is in fact a separate and very old branch of the French Comoy’s tradition remained in St Claude while the company was migrated, sold to a new owner, merged. The oldest French Comoy’s workshop was named Comoy-David and only in the 1970s it was renamed to Genod.
But this pipe should be even younger: “G (pipe) V” on the silver collar stands for Genod Viou (in 2006 Genod took over the brand of Paul Viou, French artisan). It’s still unclear what mean symbols on the other side, but if you can explain that we ‘re ready to make a reduction for you on this pipe. 🙂
The pipe marking is “Genod \ SAINT-CLAUDE.FRANCE”. The length is 14.3 cm (5.63″), bowl’s height is 4.0 cm (1.57″). External diameter of the bowl is 2.9 cm (1.14″), internal diameter is 1.7 cm (0.67″). The depth is 3.5 cm (1.38″) and this pipe weights 24 gr. Briar, acrylic stem, no filter. The chamber may look a little bit off center.
