GBD Speciale Standard Smooth Bent Bulldog 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 most associated with classic ‘British’ pipes. Founded in 1850 by the French trio Ganneval, Bondier & Donninger, the brand was bought by English company Oppenheimer at the beginning of the 20th century, who opened factories in London and Paris to meet an increasing demand for the make’s high-quality and highly desirable pipes. Partly owing to the make’s inventive, yet traditional shapes, and partly due to the high standards of their production, GBD pipes are particularly coveted by collectors, as well as those who simply appreciate classic, well-made smoking instruments.

This GBD is a fittingly traditional English-French bent bulldog, with a warm, brown sugar stain and a simple vulcanite saddle stem. Though it has a few handling marks and some charring on the back inner rim, it still has plenty of years left as a trusty smoker. It should make for the perfect workhorse pipe, well suited for puffing away while doing ones chores or other tasks.
