METAL STEM & Screw thro bowl
The BRIAL pipe is basically an alloy cylinder to which the briar bowl is screwed through the base of the bowl. The front end is permanently sealed with an alloy endpiece. The cylinder is filled with a tissue to act as an absorption media. This can be tamped in or extracted by means of the probe attached to the mouthpiece plate.
To enable the pipe to stay upright on a table, two dimples have been made in the underside of the cylinder to act as ‘feet' as shown top left in parts image.
Brials were available in natural aluminium, brass anodized finish or black as shown in lower image
The pipe was patented and manufactured by Salimar Oden in Jefferson Historic District, Muskegon, Michigan. It is believed he continued to market them until his move to Florida in 2000
