This gorgeous Briar pipe by Rattray's features a beautiful sandblast finish with a compact Vest Pipe shaped bowl, carbonized bowl coating, and a black tapered stem. These Vest Pipes are quite difficult to find in new, unsmoked condition. The stems on Vest Pipes are designed to be a bit loose, as they are to twist over the bowl for easy pocket sized carrying. This pipe is also a SITTER!
These are not like any tobacco pipe you have seen before. These oddly shaped oval pipes are designed for smokers to load up a bowl, twist the stem overtop the chamber, and then slide the pipe into the vest pocket. To smoke simply pull the pipe out, and light as usual! This practical model is quite difficult to smoke (because of the oval shaped chamber), so we suggest that only experienced pipe smokers attempt to smoke Rattray's Polly tobacco pipes.
