    Hard to believe that there were any Comoy smokers back in the 30s who were big enough to lug around this large piece of timber. Luckily for me I am a monster. I'm big too. My bidding opponents missed me by that much, as Maxwell used to say. They inched up to very close for comfort but miscalculated the time left. Saved by the clock I was. I don't think $190 with shipping is a bad deal for this puffer. I've got many Comoys but this is the biggest one yet.



    That's a gorgeous pipe, and the condition looks superb. You basically stole it. Got any other pix of it?

    It's good to have friends, especially discerning lady friends.
    Well, my parents said I was old enough to date. They said that in 1962.

    Here we go with some additional seller's photo. The link is to the "Sold" version of the ebay seller's page for this item. You have to scroll down a bit, of course.

    At 7 1/4" long, that really is a big pipe, Ed.

    From the seller's info:

    Markings: On the left of the shank, it is marked with the arched COMOY'S over EXTRAORDINAIRE. On the right of the shank is stamped MADE over IN over ENGLAND next to shape number 800. It has pristine white 3 PIECE C on the stem. All bowl stampings are VERY CRISP, a testament to the gentle handling of this vintage pipe.


    Dimensions: 7-1/4" long, 2 tall, 1-13/16" wide, with a 15/16" chamber diameter.

    WEIGHT: 78 grams

    STEM: VULCANITE

    End quote.

    The site info does not list the actual chamber depth, but I believe that a conservative estimate is 1.75", given that the bowl is listed as 2" tall.
