Once again, this pipe illustrates the connection of the French pipe industry with the brands in London. It seems that the illustrated pipe has been crafted in the FBC workshops (St Claude, FR) who was responsible for Longchamp pipes production. Indeed the model has the Longchamp caracteristic features:

  • leather clad
  • oval bowl
  • typical twisted metalic stinger
  • stampings (same fonts, same text organization).

After having been leather covered in a Parisian workshop the bowls were sent to London where they were fitted with a Parker stem.
