    Hello gentlemen,

    I found this pipe at an antique store today, I got it at a fairly decent price! I was wondering if any of yall know about this brand? I have never really heard about it, but when I went to get some pipe tobacco the clerk seemed to really like it! Any info would be appreciated. Happy smoking fellas!

    Very nice pipe. I can't tell you the history but I believe that maker is very well known and still producing pipes.

    It's a French company. Their pipes run the gamut from a step above basket to decent mid range smokers. The two I've had were decent smokers. They've been widely available in the US for about 15 years or so.

    I have a BC but haven't had time to break her in yet.

    The reviews I have read on them state they are a good smoker. They seem to have a decent resale value on flea bay.

    That's a nice looking pipe. Congratulations on a great score!
