Flat Cap Piper and Lady Briar. You may know them from their Room Note series which premiered on YTPC earlier this year.
They have come up with another over the top idea. The Pipe Tobacco Tin Art Award.
They have gone through hundreds of pipe tobacco tins and narrowed the best down to a handful. A winner was chosen by Lady Briar and revealed on this first annual show.
The idea is great and we can think of no better hosts. They take it very seriously, as they should, and it was great to see their take on some really beautiful tins. We hope this is the first of many.
Unlike some other award shows where you have to listen to long boring speeches given by a bunch of self absorbed losers, this show gets right to the point. They stick to the topic and have selected some great tins. If it were up to us the stupid Oscars would be dumped and replaced with the Pipe Tobacco Tin Art Awards.
We can see in the future where people will be sending in nominations or pointing out great tin art to the judges. It is without a doubt an overlooked aspect of the Pipe Smoking Hobby. We owe a great amount of gratitude to this wonderful couple for stepping it up and giving the subject the honor it deserves.
We won’t spoil the surprise, so you’ll have to watch the video to see who wins.
