COMMISSIONED #B2239 Amphora Poker Pipe 815 X-Tra Holland – Everyone needs at least 3 Pokers in their collection! Length:5 7/8 inches, Height: 1 7/8 inches, Rim width: 1 1/4 inches, Chamber width: 3/4 inches, Chamber depth: 1 5/16 inches.

#B2327 Chatel Horn Stem Sculpted Billiard


#B2325 Briar Petite Rustified Billiard


#B2321 Pipe Dr. Geo Deposee Horn Stem Paneled Bulldog France


COMMISSIONED #B2320 Unmarked Horn Stem Bulldog – Even though this Bulldog is unbranded, it came with the French Lot of 50, and with the horn stem, I’m guessing it is also has a French COM.  Very nice different look for a classic Bulldog and a diamond horn stem.


#B2318 Vieille Bruyere Petite Blasted Apple – French made.


#B2317 Chap Ecume – Meerschaum Lined Horn Stem Billiard – This French made of St. Claude, has some shank challenges, but the fact that it’s Meerschaum lined makes this restoration very much worth it. I like the horn rim – adds a rustic feel.


#B2308 Gentleman Rusticated Pocket Pipe – This Horn shape I’m calling a Pocket Pipe because it’s length is a pocket-perfect 4 1/4 inches. The rest of the dimensions are: Height: 1 1/2 inches, Rim width: 1 1/4 inches, Chamber width: 3/4 inches, Chamber depth: 1 1/4 inches. Another interesting collector.


#B2307 Sport Bullmoose – A Bullmoose is a squat Rhodesian with a very heavy 1/4 bent stem, according to Bill Burney’s Pipe Shapes Chart. This is a great example with a hefty presence in the palm.


COMMISSIONED #B2304 C.A.V. St Claude Canadian – French made.


#B2303 Silver Match Safari St Claude France Billiard – Another acquisition from the French eBay Lot of 50 – a nice sized classic Billiard.


#B2293 Jeantet Saddle Stem Rusticated Billiard – A French made pipe of St. Claude.


COMMISSIONED #B2241 Stanwell Hand Made In Denmark 56 Canadian Shape – Stanwell is the name of pipes coming from Denmark. This Canadian shape number 56 is a good one to add to one’s collection.

#B2252 Royal Danish # 901 MADE IN DENMARK Freehand
