    Nice lookin' but what is up with the chambers???:eek: The dog's chamber looks so narrow you couldn't fit a pinky finger in it, and the Comoy has an oval shape chamber???:confused: Beautiful woodwork, I love the birdseye look, but I would be suspicious of how the chambers might affect smoking.

    WOW! That birdseye is stunning! Both pipes are gorgeous! That oval chamber is interesting. I wonder what the idea behind that is?

    I think , in general , oval pipes were considered Vest or Pocket pipes . I have an Olde England oval bowled pipe [ I busted the stem :( ] that does just kinda slide in a pocket ... back in the day , a vest pocket , more than likely

    Those are incredible, now if I could just convince the little woman into letting me budget one in. The shape flows so well, but I do agree with TheLonePipeman; the bowl does look quite small.

    Cheers Gents:puffy:

    The bulldog is beautiful but the bowl is way too small for my purposes. That 'vest pocket' pipe is a real beauty though I can imagine proper tamping and such might be problematic with that oval bowl. Indeed, the flat profile oval bowls were intended to slip into a vest or breast pocket without creating a noticeable bulge. Of course, that was when the three piece suit was the norm. Back when men wore suits and a man without a hat was not 'dressed'.

    I'm mainly looking at the shape of the Bulldog and the grain or the oval pipe . I'd take either in a heartbeat :ohyh:
