Comoy’s Tradition 296, Smooth Canadian Briar Pipe, English Estates [SOLD OUT]
Out of stock
Comoy’s is a historic brand in pipe making, and possibly the most historic brand in the making of briar pipes. Though originally founded in 1825 by a French family from Saint Claude, France, production of Comoy’s pipes was soon moved to London, England, where it established itself as one of the quintessential English pipe companies.
The Tradition line was originally introduced in 1925 to commemorate 100 years of pipe-making by the Comoy family. It is now a prized pipe by collectors, especially collectors of English pipes. Eagle eyed visitors will be able to note the presence of the coveted ‘three part C’ stem logo, indicating that this pipe was produced before Comoy’s was fully bought out by Cadogan Investments, after which this practice stopped.
Judging by the font used on the Comoy’s nomenclature, as well as the three part C and the ‘made in’ stamp, my educated guess – though I could be wrong – would be that this pipe was made in the 1950s. In any case, it’s a beautiful, lightweight pipe, and an excellent rendition of the timeless Canadian shape.
The stamping reads:
