Evening folks. Welcome to Brook & Boulder. We collect and sell only what we have a passion for. I particularly, have been collecting pipes for almost a decade.

Well... deep cut quote or not, I'm sellin. Some of the pipes you see listed are from my private collection and others I have simply purchased in passing.

A bit about this pipe: A rusticated Comoy's Highgate #495 Sitter ~Francois Comoy and his brothers started making pipes in 1825 in the small monastic town of Saint-Claude in eastern France. Francois and his son Louis discovered that briar had vastly superior qualities and from 1848 made pipes only in this wood. In 1879 Francois’s son Henri, who was born in 1850, moved to London with a small bag of tools, but a great deal of experience. Henri set up a small factory in Seven Dials which is today known as Cambridge Circus. He was one of the prime movers in the establishment of the briar pipe trade in London and is credited with being the author of the appellation “London Made”.Comoy’s remained a family owned company for almost 150 years. Of the highest quality, Comoy continues to lead the industry to present day.
