Seller: Top-Rated Seller cowell89 (2.867) 99.8%, Location: Liverpool, Ships to: Worldwide, Item: 163782685064 Here we have a superb & rare vintage or antique briar estate pipe in the 'bent billiard' shape, complete witha horn stem, and a lovely floral decoration carved onto the bowl. It was crafted by Swiss maker "BBK". "Josef Brunner, oldest son of the farmer Konstantin Brunner from the hamlet Nieder-Huggerwald, was sent in 1871 to a pipe turner in Winkel / Alsace for his apprenticeship. Eventually, he went to Saint-Claude, which was then the world's stronghold of briar pipe manufacturing. Back home in 1878, he installed a small turner's workshop in the house of his father. With the energetic support of his two younger brothers, he began to produce tobacco pipes of his own calculation, taking them to the markets in the surrounding area. The production was boosted, and business developed pleasantly. The pipes from Kleinlützel were well appreciated and received many awards, e.g., a gold medal for outstanding craftsmanship at the National Swiss Fair in Bern in 1914. In 1932, one Mr. Buhofer joined the Brunner family. The company was named Brunner-Buhofer-Kompagnie, and, shortly thereafter, Bru-Bu. Bru Bu is widely known as BBK"-Pipedia The pipe has been carefully smoked and remains in excellent condition overall - light wear to the bowl rim - a few lightdings on the metal ferrule - one tiny hairline split and a few teethmarks on the stem. There is a shallow layer of carbon in the chamber, and a little on the bowl rim.The stem fixes very securely to the shank, and air flows through the pipe freely. On one side of the shank is "La Sante" over "Bruyere", with "B.B.K" in an oval on the reverse. Thoroughly cleaned and ready to enjoy.Sold as seen.
