    Another Comoy‘s from Denmark

    This was bought at the same time as the Blue Riband. It is a cased, silver-mounted military mount hallmarked to London 1916. The case is somewhat damaged but Piffyr knows a genius restorer up in the wilds of Northumbria, and I‘ve talked to him already about the case. He has restored five pipe cases in the last two years, and immediately knew that if the case was English, then the hard material was hard cardboard and the leather on top was paper thin. So the case is going off tomorrow to Martin in Northumbria and we‘ll see what he can do.

    This pipe has been well-smoked and was very slightly over-reamed at one point. It is really tiny. So here is a picture together with a second similar military mount from BBB from the same timeframe. The BBB is small but the Comoy‘s is minuscule.

    The stem is very unusual because the button is small and flat (not orific nor semi-orific) and very, very small.

    The rim could do with some loving attention by Piffyr, who has already declared his admiration for this pipe and will hopefully to agree to restore it at some point in the future.

    This is my first Comoy‘s that is this old. So it is interesting to see that the s at the end of the stamp flows back to underline Comoy‘s as in the Sasieni stampings. I‘ve seen this in Pipedia but never had such a pipe in my hands.

    I think you made the right choice with the case. From seeing Martin's website, It looks like he really knows what he is doing!

    AbFab, Mark! What a diminutive beauty that is!

    You won't regret trusting that case to Martin. If there's one man in the world that knows how to treat it right, then you've just found him. It's a bit odd to say, because we do different things, but his approach to leather restoration work has been a big influence on my pipe work.

    And congrats on that historic Comoy's, Mark!

    After all of the statistics and reports are finished with, I've come to the conclusion that the only real danger of smoking a pipe is being interrupted.

    Yes, but they are not complaining about their visit to Denmark.
