#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.


#B2238 Brigham 103 Can. Pat. 372982 Rusticated Billiard – Length:5 3/4 inches, Height: 1 3/4 inches, Rim width: 1 1/4 inches, Chamber width: 13/16 inches, Chamber depth: 1 9/16 inches.


#B2242 WENHALL Futura 87 Rusticated Fancy Miniature Billiard – This is an interesting shape and I’m not quite sure what to call it.  It sports a long ‘Canadian-like’ bent shank, a canted Dublin-like stummel and an attractive rusticated surface.  So, I call it a Fancy Miniature Billiard!  Length:4 7/8 inches, Height: 1 3/4 inches, Rim width: 1 1/4 inches, Chamber width: 7/8 inches, Chamber depth: 1 3/4 inches.


#B2244 Bennington Supreme Bent Billiard – Length: 5 3/4 inches, Height: 1 3/4 inches, Rim width: 1 3/4 inches, Chamber width: 3/4 inches, Chamber depth: 1 1/2 inches.

 


COMMISSIONED #B2333 Sport Horn Stem Stubby Paneled Tomato


#B2332 Paul Viou St. Claude Half Bent Billard – France


#B2331 Bruyere Extra Paneled Billiard – This is a very nicely shaped Paneled Billiard that I believe was manufactured in France.  The bowl is ample.


#B2329 Aspir Fabrication L.M.B. Petite Saddle Stem Billiard


#B2328 Hilson Fantasia Block Meerschaum Lined Billiard


#B2327 Chatel Horn Stem Sculpted Billiard


#B2325 Briar Petite Rustified Billiard


COMMISSIONED #B2324 BBB Classic London, England 106S Chimney – With the brass roundel on this BBB, gives some age.  I’m calling it a ‘Chimney’ just by the appearance.  I’ll seek to verify this with the shape number in my research. A nice looking vintage English pipe.


#B2323 Jeantet Superior Slightly Bent Saddle Chimney France – I’m calling this shape a Chimney, which could be a marginal call, has a distinctive tightening of the ‘chimney’ at the rim which I find attractive.  Jeantet is a French name that I appreciate after restoring several.


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


#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.


#B2319 Napoleon of Italy Billiard – This Italian stamped classic Billiard has very nice grain pattern hidden beneath the old finish.


#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 Horn 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.


#B2306 Paul Viou St Claude France Horn Stem ‘Feather’ – The shape name, ‘Feather’ comes from the French ‘Plume’ which is how the current owner of the Paul Viou name describes it – I like it.  This is a unique shape while being compact still has a full presence in the palm.  A unique addition to anyone’s collection.


#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.


COMMISSIONED #B2301 Crown Gold Plated Band Giant Bent Acrylic Billiard – This Billiard is a Goliath with a length of 6 inches and a huge bowl with a height of 2 1/2 inches – plenty of packing space for your favorite blend.  The acrylic stem is eye catching and a gold plated stamped band completes the classy ensemble.


#B2299 Bull’s Head Bent Sculpted – He’s missing his horns, but I have plans to take care of that!  I think he’s got character.


#B2298 ‘Spotted’ Bent Billiard Military Mount – An interesting texture that isn’t briar but a technique that emulates carbon fiber.  It’s a fabric/resin that wraps the briar.


#B2296  Beldor Studio Pencil Stem Panel Apple – this pipe could possibly be categorized as a small Churchwarden with the length at 7 1/2 inches and the bowl height and 1 1/8 inches.


#B2294 Butz Choquin Regate 1601 St Claude France Billiard


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


#B2270 Sasieni The Kensington 296B Made In London England Canadian Shape – This very collectable Canadian comes from the Sasieni family of pipes.


#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.


#B2245 Kaywoodie Super Grain 76 Oval Bowl 9 or 6?


#B2252 Royal Danish # 901 MADE IN DENMARK Freehand


#B2253 Pipstar Standard 06 026 Dublin Sitter
