GBD Unique Polished 7, Anvil Estate Briar Pipe, English Estates [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.
GBD’s Unique line was comprised of pipes that were – as the name suggests – unique, with records suggesting that these pipes were crafted by Horace ‘Horry’ Jameson. This one is certainly distinctive, having been fashioned in the shape of a blacksmith’s anvil. The pipe was clearly cared for by its previous owner, being in pristine condition despite having been smoked at least a couple of times in its past life. Though it is an odd and quite large shape, the pipe does fit into the hand quite neatly, thanks to the particular contours of the anvil shape. It is also not overly heavy – but thanks to its base, it is also an easy sitter if one does need to put it down for one reason or another.
