A calabash shape (some call it "a bell") was always highly appreciated by collectors as the most associated with the smoking pipes history and ancient traditional shapes. Therefore many companies and artisans offered their interpretation of the calabash pipe; and of course such a famous French manufactory as Butz-Choquin couldn't lose the opportunity to express its own vision.
The pipe markings are "Butz-Choquin \ CALABASH \ DE LUXE", "ST. CLAUDE \ FRANCE". The length is 15.7 cm (6.18"), bowl's height is 6.5 cm (2.56"). External diameter of the bowl is 5.0 cm (1.97"), internal diameter is 2.3 cm (0.9"). The depth is 5.7 cm (2.24") and this pipe weights 51 gr. Briar, vulcanite stem, no filter.
