Available Pipes & Accessories
John’s Natural 532 Square Shank Globe
This is another beautiful briar made for John’s Pipe Shop by Comoy’s, this time at the French factory in St Claude.
The stummel is cut from a lovely piece of briar, without fills or flaws. The original Vulcanite stem has had tooth dents repaired. This pipe is ready to enjoy and is a great way to add a vintage Comoy to the rack for less! $60CAD
Bewlay Reject 23 Billiard
Lovely traditional English Billiard shape with some stunning Tiger stripe grain. Marked “Bewlay” over “REJECT” on the left shank, and “23” on the right. Original stem is stamped with a “B” on the left flank.
Stummel has one large fill on the left rear quarter just below the rim (thus the “Reject” status). Note that the fill does not show so glaringly in real life as it does in the pic below under strong light. In fact, one must look for it to spot it.
A great opportunity to acquire a quality pipe at a great price! $45CAD
Dr Plumb Peacemaker Metal Pipe with NOS Bowl
Here’s one for the metal pipe lover! This Peacemaker pipe was made in England and marketed under several names, including GBD and Dr Plumb, and features screw-off, interchangeable briar bowls, aluminum body, an absorbent washer-style filter and composite stem.
Marked “Peacemaker” over “1” over “England on the bottom of the aluminum base, and “Plumb” on the top of the stem near the shank.
Comes with a New Old Stock briar bowl and a box of vintage Peacemaker filters. $45CAD
Danish Sovereign 75M (Ivarsson Designed)
Freehand, slightly bent, oval stem & mouthpiece, by Sixten Ivarsson. 5-1/2″ long, with 1-3/8″ wide by 1-3/4″ high bowl. 3/4″ bore. Similar to the 86M listed below, but with a more “billiard-y” bowl shape. A beautiful pipe for any smoker. $60CAD
Danish Sovereign 86M (Ivarsson Designed) SOLD
Earl’s Court Sterling Mount Prince
An elegantly handsome English Prince pipe, freshly restored and ready to go to a new piper. Stamped “EARLS COURT” over “LONDON MADE” in block letters on the left shank and “LONDON ENGLAND” on the right shank. The shank band is stamped “STERLING SILVER”. There is no shape number stamp. $50CAD
Harcourt B Freehand Tulip
This is a beautiful freehand Tulip pipe made by Prebem Holm for Dunhill circa 1970s or early 1980s. Featuring nearly 360-degree vertical grain and plateaux rim and shank end, this pipe will be a fine addition to any piper’s rack. The Vulcanite stem has had a tooth dent repaired, and is, I believe, a replacement. The tenon has been fattened with CA glue to fit snugly in the shank mortise.
Pipe measures 6″ long overall, with a 2-3/4″ tall bowl. Weight 46 grams. $75CAD
Yello-Bole Standard Hexagonal Billiard
This elegant smaller pipe is a bit of a mystery – the pipe is stamped with two shape numbers, “92” and “53”. Shape 92 in the Kaywoodie shape chart corresponds to our Hexagonal Billiard shape, while Shape 53 indicates a bulldog of some sort, which is clearly not the case here. More interestingly, the Hex Billiard, according to the shape chart, was only produced in 1927, which contradicts the “Yello-Bole Standard” grade stamp, which was introduced in the 1950’s.
Regardless of stamping, this is a nice, smaller pipe for those looking for a short smoke. Pipe measures 5-1/2″ long with a 5/8″W x 1-1/8″D chamber.
This one came to me with a cracked shank and broken tenon; it now sports a shiny nickel shank band and a Delrin tenon in the vulcanite stem. $40CAD
1930’s John’s Silver Mount 433 Dublin by Comoy’s
Freshly restored and ready to provide another 90 years of service to a new piper, this John’s Silver Mount 433 Dublin by Comoy’s is as elegant a pipe shape as they come. Gently flared bowl walls, round pencil shank and a Sterling silver band come together to make a simple yet classy pipe as only Comoy’s could make them.
This pipe is stamped “JOHN’S ” over “SILVER MOUNT” on the left flank, and “JOHN”S PIPE SHOP, LOS ANGELES” and “433” on the right flank. The underside of the shank is marked with a circular “MADE IN ENGLAND” stamp that dates most likely from the 1930’s but could be 20 years older. All stamps are faded but readable. $60CAD
Early 20th Century Grundel Special Canadian
Dating no later than the mid-1920’s, this handsome Canadian shaped pipe was produced by either Emil or Christian Grundel, for their shop in San Francisco, California, USA. Marked simply “Grundel” over “Special” on top of the oval shank, this pipe features a Bakelite stem with orofic opening and threaded aluminum tenon.
As with many older pipes, this early 20th-Century briar is smaller than modern pipes, measuring 5-3/4″ long with a 1-1/2″ tall by 1-1/8″ wide bowl. The 11/16″ chamber bore is perfect for those that prefer shorter smokes. $45CAD
Early 20th Century Meerschaum & Bakelite Billiard
The Bakelite stem with round orifice opening date this meerschaum billiard to sometime between 1907 when Bakelite was invented and the mid 1920s when the slot-style opening was adopted. I have cleaned and waxed the meer, fitted a nickel repair band at the shank and converted the stem to a push tenon, replacing the original but damaged bone screw tenon. No case with this meer, unfortunately, but it will be packed well to arrive ready to enjoy. $45CAD
