Pulvers' Prior Briar
P.O. Box 61146
Palo Alto, CA  94306

(650) 965-7403
Stanwell Jubilee #615238 (SOLD 8/8/17)
the issue with this pipe is the tooth indent on the bottom of the
stem.  Otherwise, this pipe is in exc. cond.  Although short, the
size of the bowl is Grp. 4 and the draw is open.  It is, of course,
a Danish made Stanwell with pretty good grain.  The "S" logo
on the stem is buffed down, but is still visible.  Vulcanite stem.
4.8" long, bowl 1.7" tall.  Weight: 1.25 oz., 34 grams. $25.
Sasieni Windsor #615262 (SOLD)
This handsome sandblast, with fine graining, didn't qualify for
Four Dot status for some reason, but that is not likely to have
any impact on its smoking qualities as it is clearly from a good
vintage of Sasieni briar.  It's either a large Grp. 3 in size or a
small Grp. 4.  The stem is original, obviously, with the "S" on
it and the rest of the nomenclature is all clear.  Very minor tooth
chatter on the bottom of the stem and a clean, crisp rim.  All in
all, a great looking (and smoking) pipe from the era of traditional
British pipes and shapes.  Used.
5.65" long, bowl 1.65" tall.  Weight: 7/8 oz., 56 grams. $35.
Comoy's Everyman #8956
I've put this on the Specials page because having a pipe like
this, in this condition (near-new) at my price is nothing if it isn't
special.  I think it probably was smoked for a few seconds, but
even the bevel edged on the inside of the rim shows no sign of
fire and the exhibits no tooth chatter, top or bottom.  Grp. 5 in
size with an open draw.  For those who need to know, the
shape # for this pipe is 601.  Used.
5.55" long, bowl 2" tall.  Weight: 1 5/8 oz., 46 grams. $45.
St. Claude, France...Napoleon, n'est ce pas? 89-387GN
Someday someone will explain why a man who killed off 1/2
million Frenchmen in one campaign is so revered in that
country.  And that doesn't even address that they were the
physical cream of France's youth.  The world is mad.  This pipe
is in good condition.  The carving is less than stellar. Used.
5.5"long, bowl 2" tall.  Weight: 2 5/8 oz., 66 grams. $35.
1977 Comoy's Christmas Pipe #89111 (SOLD 8/25/17)
Although it's a perfectly fine vulcanite stem, with no marks on it,
it is not an original Comoy's stem, so despite the fact that the
rest of the pipe is in very good cond., it appears on the
Specials page with what I hope is an appealingly low price.  The
draw is open & the nomenclature buffed down a bit but legible.
6" long, bowl 2" tall.  Weight: 1.5 oz., 43 grams. Used. $35.
Comoy's Tinderbox 50th Anniv. Edition 331 (RESERVED)
The pipe was made in France, original home of Comoy's and if I
were being cynical, I'd say that's the reason it has two fills on an
otherwise nice piece of briar.  The cond. is exc., but there is no
"C" on the stem, so I'm going to make a great offer on this pipe:
the price will include Priority mailing in the U.S., which is an $8
value.  Vulcanite stem and open draw.  Used.
5.7" long, bowl 1.85" tall.  Weight: 1.25 oz., 36 grams. $32.50
4 Assorted Pipes for $30 #89238 (SOLD 8/29/17)
From the top:Dante.  Aside from a very minor tooth mark on the
bottom of the stem, it's in exc. cond. Below that is a Uhle's
Straight Grain Grp. 6 size in exc. cond. Uhle's was a famous
Milwaukee pipe shop.  Below that is an "MGM Briar 1912" from
Italy.  It, too is in exc. cond.  Grp. 5 size.  The bottom pipe is a
"Roadtown" with no other stamping on it.  It's well made & like
all the pipes here, has an open draw.  It is unsmoked. Grp. 5.
Comoy's Blue Riband #8973 (SOLD 8/26/17)
Because this pipe has a replacement stem, I'm offering it at a
"Specials" price.  The cond. is exc., the size Grp. 6 & the draw
is wide-open.  The new stem is vulcanite.  Barely smoked. Used.
6" long, bowl 2" tall.  Weight: 1.5 oz., 43 grams. $75.
