Vintage Ad (1944): Lord Davenport pipes

This is one of my favorite old pipe ads. The gimmick here is not how the pipe is made, but how well it goes with your face.

It didn't matter what you looked like: Clark Gable, Ward Cleaver, that big guy from "All in the Family" who turned out to be gay, the guy from the Dos Equis commercials, Uncle Ben Parker, or a vaguely evil and militant Jason Robards; Lord Davenport had a pipe for you.
