GBD New Standard 347, Smooth Straight Apple Estate Briar Pipe [SOLD OUT]


Out of stock


GBD was one of several prominent examples of a French pipe brand that, due to certain circumstances, became a maker associated with classic ‘British’ pipes. Founded in 1850 by the French trio Ganneval, Bondier & Donninger, the brand was bought and moved to London at the beginning of the 20th century, were it continued to produce high-quality and highly desirable pipes.

Introduced after WW2, GBD’s New Standard was one of the higher end lines the make offered, building off of the popularity of its forebear, the Standard. This one sports a beautiful blonde stain, used to emphasize the natural briar patterns of the stummel. The pipe is a nice mix of quiet reserve and outspoken charm, with the traditional, straight apple shape being taken up a notch by a bowl swimming in bird’s-eye grain. Judging by the nomenclature and the brass rondelle inlaid in the stem, this pipe was made prior to GBD’s merger with Cadogan Investments in 1980, which is always a bonus.

The condition is great. The inner rim has some darkening, and there are one or two shallow tooth indentations in the vulcanite stem, but these are superficial imperfections, especially on a pipe with as much history at its heel as this one.
