Teck Select II 9456 by GBD – $45CAD

Here is a classic English Full Bent Billiard made by GBD, presumably for a tobacconist shop.

The pipe is stamped “Teck Select II” and “London England” over “9456”. I couldn’t find any info on the Teck brand but a 9456 is definitely a GBD shape.

This pipe shows a pretty mix of grain around the bowl but a few fills are noticeable. I added a small bevel to the inner rim edge to remove some charring. The vulcanite stem fits well at the shank and is free from tooth chatter or other marks.

Measures roughly 5-1/4″ long from bottom edge of bowl to button. Bowl stands 1-3/4″ tall by 1-3/8″ wide with a 3/4″ chamber bore.
