    Quick question if anyone happens to know the answer...saw the above movie last night and the lead actress Eva Green/Miss Peregrine was smoking a pipe periodically throughout the movie...it looked like an awesome pipe, wondering if anyone knows the maker/details etc? Haven't been able to find anything online (apart from many complaints in forums about smoking in modern movies...wouldn't have happened in Bing's day!)

    Good book/movie. I was admiring it during the movie, and my kids kept asking me what kind of pipe that was and if i had one like it. I kept telling them that Miss P's pipe is way classier than any pipe that I own.

    Who cares, they are both HOT!

    Nowhere in the world will such a brotherly feeling of confidence be experienced as amongst those who sit together smoking their pipes

    Yes, please. I, too, would like the pipe-lighting Falcon. Didn't know I needed one until I saw that picture.

    Is this thread really only a few hours old? I swear I've read it before. Serious déja vue.

    More serious: How was the flick? Recommend it for other than the lovely lady and fine pipes?

    I know that you believe you understood what you think I said, but I'm not sure you realize that what you heard is not what I meant.

    You're not going crazy - we had one when the movie initially came out. A hot lady with a pipe is always something to talk about

    I too would like to know what pipe she's smoking. The shape does have a familiar look to it.

    This is a guess, but in interviews she said she had 2 pipes, kept one. I've looked through a bunch of interviews with Ana Green to see if she mentions the pipe maker--no luck. But I'd guess the prop-master wouldn't be using 2 vintage pipes? Simply because if one were broken/lost you'd want to replace it for continuity's sake, and finding two similar vintage pipes would be tricky. I'm guessing the pipe(s) would be current production and not terribly difficult to come by?

    But on the other hand, I'm kind of surprised the interweb is turning up so little info. Seems like a pipe-maker would ID this as theirs for the niche folk like us who'd want to know. Or a pipe aficionado would already have ID'd it.

    With manufacturers paying major amounts for "product placement" in films, the pipe brand in this instance has missed a major opportunity not having the pipe identified. No one will ever know what it is, while everyone seems to admire it.

    With the antismoking climate we live in, and this being a teen/young adult novel, I would guess they're trying to keep it under wraps to "save the children".

    oh my goodness some AWESOME responses here! i totally agree with the need for a pipe lighting falcon!

    thought the movie was great, and the pipe looked so nice, i was for sure someone somewhere would have some info available on who made it...it does seem like it's being 'kept under wraps'...don't see how there can be any problem with the image of Eva Green smoking that pipe

    i guess its the unsolvable mystery...probably better for my PAD that way anyway!!

    I saw this one a few days ago because folks were posting about it earlier. Great movie! My guess is that despite the current anti-smoking climate, a pipe company wouldn't have the same profit revenue that a candy company or even a bottled water company would have for product placement in such an expensive movie. But, my guess is that it's a Chacom. They make a huge range of "regular" looking pipes. My first thought was that she should have been smoking a more exotic looking pipe, like a churchwarden or Savinelli Clark, but... they wanted to make sure we "the audience" would assume it is normal tobacco and not marijuana. We are sort of sheltered in our thinking, being a part of the pipe community; however, the majority of the population still thinks every mention of "weed" in Tolken's work is a reference to marijuana, just like a pot smoker assumes that every word in an obscure song or piece of literature is obviously a drug reference... to them. For example, Peter Paul and Mary have stated inumerable times that their song, Puff the Magic Dragon, had nothing to do with drugs, but drug users just keep on associating the song with drugs, regardless. So, giving Miss Perigine the most "average" looking pipe possible, without being TOO male looking. A straight pipe, of course, would have looked too masculine and virile. A bent pipe, no one associates a bent pipe with virility. Nothing against them, but a droopy bent was a "safe" choice, IMO.
    And, I think Chacom, because I can't think of which shape by Savinelli that it would be, and it just has that "average" look that I associate with Chacoms.

    Could have also been a prop make specifically for the movie.

    Yeh, ha ha, that prop guy turned out to be able to spin a pretty good pipe shape, if that's the case. I'm sure he was standing at the lathe mumbling about how much easier it would have been to just go buy a pipe, as he tossed attempt after attempt in the trash. I know I would have. But, I could see that maybe they altered a store bought cheap Chacom to vape a smoke for the movie. THAT I could expect from Hollywood.
    But, if an artisan pipe maker did make it, what an awesome chance to get your work seen. I'm sure we would eventually hear about it through our rather tight-knit community. And, kudos if someone did make it. That would be awesome!

    Movie productions do have access to many artists and fabricators. Don't have to have a lot of tools like a lathe to make a pipe. I made this with a drill press and a belt sander.

    In the book there were pictures of the pipe, and it was very similar to the one she is smoking above. There were differences between book and movie, but the pipe wasnt one of them.

    apart from many complaints in forums about smoking in modern movies

    Well, it didn't take long for their public school brainwashing to kick in! I'm guessing that most of those kids complaining about the smoking in the movie have not ever even been near a pipe!

    Is there an advocacy group against second-hand smoke for falcons now?

    We watched it last night, meh. Have to agree with Grue, we weren't impressed. Now Ink, that's a movie and probably done with a tiny fraction of the budget, but alas no pipe smoking beauties. I ran across this Rattray's today, similar but not quite it: http://www.ebay.com/itm/RATTRAYS-THE-DRUIDS-LIMITED-SANDBLASTED-BENT-EGG-PIPE-NEW-incl-ADAPTER-/311711214428?hash=item48936fab5c:g:~K8AAOSwYIxX8kvk

    It's like a swan-necked bent billiard meets an egg (possibly that the falcon laid) and voila: a striking woman will smoke it.

    In the above pic you can start to see the stem is probably amber, and in the one below, quite apparent.

    I personally think it may be a Savinelli. Some savs don't have markings on the stem, while BC and Chacom all have stem logos.

    All the pics combined have me leaning to a tortoiseshell stem, but not amber. Way too dark in all but one pic for amber IMHO. Also, the spacing between the band and the bit has me thinking it's not a very expensive pipe.

    Yes, probably not amber; my bad. And the spacing could easily be the props crew didn't assemble the pipe properly! But she did have it going for some scenes. I did not see her use a Peregrine Falcon to assist in lighting....

    No idea what pipe it is but I have been curious about this movie.
    Based on the mostly favourable reviews here in this thread I think I will watch it in the morning when I get home from work. Hmmm...now to decide on which pipe and leaf to enjoy while watching the movie??

    The pipe was in fact made by one of my favorite pipe makers, Ian Walker of Northern Briar. I spoke with Ian and his wife Catriona at the Chicago Pipe Show Friday after noon and got a few details. From what I understand the pipe was not stamped and he could not promote making the pipe before the movie was made. Ian is not actively promoting that he made the pipe but I'm sure he would be happy to discuss it if you are fortunate enough to have a chance to speak with him. I don't believe he has plans to make many of this shape but I think,if pressed, he would do them as custom orders.

    Ian had previously made pipes for Burton's Sweeney Todd, though all things smoking related were apparently pulled from the film. After seeing the very awkward scenes of Depp mumble mouthing and attempting to act while smoking a pipe that had been cut from Finding Neverland, maybe it was for the best. LOL!

    Having not seen the movie I was doing an image search to find pics of the pipe and stumbled upon this thread. After lurking here occasionally the last few years I figured I would join in and hopefully be able to add to this discussion. Cheers!
