The color of the stem and/or the finish of the bowl could change: see detailed view for three variants.

The issue with this model was the rhinestones which often came off the bowl.

The model has a flat bottom (hence "Setter") and is available in panel (this pipe), billiard and poker shapes. It comes without system (stinger) and with a push stem.



  (Underside) 5605 Shellcraft Kaywoodie

Stampings of a Shellcraft pipe crafted in the early 1930s with a Synchro-stem system. The pipe is sandblasted while the early Shellcraft was rusticated. The "drinkless logo" on the stem has been replaced by a clover and a 4 digit shape number has been attributed indicating thus the entry of the Shellcraft into Kaywoodie's lines.

Period: 1943-1972

Pipes of the Silhouette line allways came in a sandblasted finish and with a metal band.

The bit incorporated a 3-way smoke passage with two of the passages terminating in the lip-end of the bit and the third in the notch on the top of the bit (see enlarged picture #3).

The model has been released in the early 1950's

See also the "All Briar" model with the same notch.

Super Grain

(Left side) Super Grain (Over...) Kaywoodie
 (Right side) Imported Briar, 5131C
 This pipe is stamped with a four digit number which situates its production year between 1931 and 1938. Because of the introduction of the "Imported Briar" stamping in 1935, the pipe could have been manufactured between 1935 and 1938.


 Kaywoodie (Over...) Super Grain, Imported Briar
Compare the stampings of these two pipes: Early Super Grains were stamped Super Grain over top of Kaywoodie.

White Briar


 (Left side) Kaywoodie White Briar
The Streamliner shape above with a White Briar finish was already intruduced in 1953 since it appeared on a calendar of that year.

Period: 1951-1989

The bowls of the White Briar line come with hard white finish. Note a different screw thread as for the usual Synchro Stem patent. (Compare enlarged view with the following document)

(No line stamping)
