I have a cased 1919 bruyere antique on the way which I’ll post once cleaned up.
Good to know.It’s one of my favourite pipes. I almost exclusively smoke semois in it and get flavours I didn’t even know were in that blend. Clenches like a dream
Ok been meaning to get to that Virgin's stem, so thanks for the kick in the pants to move it up to the top of my list ;-) Give me a couple days to get that one cleaned up, and then I'll post those three along with my de luxe billiard. ;-)View attachment 140048
These ones are all pre-cadogan/80s
In the middle is the first estate pipe I ever purchased. It’s an Orlik de luxe and started me off on this rabbit hole. I won it for $3.

2 old bond streets
3 virgins (natural finished supremes)

@SBC post some pics of the supreme, virgin and corona I sent your way. Or I can if you want.
if I’m honest, I’ve found the deluxe pipes to be more than outstanding burners.
Great looking pipes - the stubby billiard and the cased pair.Pretty excited to have added these to the collection today. Now I better get them cleaned up and put back into work.
