From the first look the pipe reminds Comoy's creatures – well selected briar with a wonderful almost perfect straight grain and typical for Comoy's contrast staining. And this impression seems to be reasonable – the pipe was made by Cadogan Investments – the company, which obtained not only Comoy's brand name, but materials, technologies and the best professionals too. The history of the Civic brand itself is quite untypical. Unlike many famous manufacturers (BBB, Comoy, GBD, Loewe, Orlik), which were acquired by Cadogan sooner or later, Civic became the condensation centre, which formed the Cadogan Investment. The Civic Company Ltd of London was formed by Imperial Tobacco in 1921 as an outsource producer and trader of briar pipes and fancy goods. In 1928 Civic merged with other companies, what formed Cadogan Investments - a well known and very powerful player on the modern smoking pipes market.
