    I recently bought this pipe on ebay. This pipe and a few others came with a pipe stand I wanted. I cannot find out much about this pipe. I love the way it smokes and would like to learn more about it.
    It says GBD PIERROT on one side and Made in England 32_8 on the other.

    I'm familiar with GBD's but not that model. It reminds me of a lower priced version of the GBD New Standard, which was completely smooth and had a clear lucite stem. This one probably had some minor flaws that they decided to cut out and made a half-carve pattern.

    Check here for info about GBD http://pipedia.org/index.php?title=GBD

    Man , I love an apple shape and a vario finish to boot ... you scored ! I'm not sure when that model was produced or if it's still in production ... but oh well .. it's killer . I'd have that sucker on my buffer and make it glow ! It looks as though it might have a bigger size chamber ?!

    I'm not really sure about sizes. It's almost an inch in diameter. I would like to buff it out. I'm deployed rightnow and don't have access to those types of tools.
