I've searched for this one for nearly seven years. A few 2nd's line shape 256 pipes were listed last year, and they ended up going for only slightly less than this real deal, a 1920s to 1938 "Old Bruyere finish pipe.

The bowl is solid, so this one will get regular (but careful) use.

Full restoration pix are at the Reborn Pipes link:

Beautiful work on that one, Al. The lines really stand out to me! Impressive!

Thought you already had one of those, Al. How many chubby rhody shapes by Comoy's are there? Or am I confusing them with GBDs?

I've found most of the British make Rhodesian chubbies, but the 256 Comoy's was the most difficult.

The others:

499 Extraordinaire



498 Extraordinaire



284 Tradition



440 Tradition (number changed from 283)



From GBD:

The 9242



and 9438 Virgin



Peterson 999 (Sterling)



Sasieni (Four Dot Rustic)

The 499 was the one I was thinking of. Either you, Greg Pease, or somebody else has one. Thanks. (Your response should be a sticky somewhere, I'm thinkin'.)

The 499 was the first pipe on my "Holy Grail" list. It's actually a bit too large for my preference, but I'll never get rid of it.

Your taste is much in line with mine Al. I do love those shapes and frequently ask myself why I don't have more of them. And your restoration is spot on as always.

Cool


Cheers,

RR

Thanks, I'm usually pretty confident going into most restorations, but I was a bit nervous doing this one. One drop, or catch with the buffing wheel would have been a disaster, this one is pretty much irreplaceable.

I smoked it this morning, with some MM965 of course. It smoked great, no ghosting, so my cleaning diligence paid off.
