This is a beautiful vintage smoking pipe that found me! Has a great feel to it and the Briar wood is just beautiful. I wouldn't normally be drawn to a pipe but, this one is begging for a good home, where it will be cared for and appreciated for it's beauty. I cleaned it up the best I could and find it be in very good condition. I did a little research and this is what I found:

"At the end of the 19th century GBD offered 1,500 models(!). (Please note however, that the same shape offered with three different materials for the stems was counted thrice!) In the first decade of the 20th century stems made of amber and synthetic amber were still widely used, but Vulcanite and horn had become the most popular materials. A further sign of the times were army mount pipes which were available meanwhile in 30 different shapes of inceasing popularity. The winner of the day was the Billiard (36 shapes now), along with 36 Bents and 32 Dublins / Zulus. Best newcomer was the Bulldog (15). The hoofs were almost out of fashion."

This pipe was in a 1961 catalog I found on the web. It is a Billiard Medium Digby #124, I believe that the stem is Vulcanite. The Pipe measures 5 3/4 inches long and the bowl is 1 3/4 inches high. The bowl looks very clean but, has been used. No cracks or burns to the top of the bowl. I have learned alot about Pipes, thanks to this beautiful example! I hope I can help find it a Special home!
