"WDC Triangle
The Genuine Bakelite

WDC Triangle Pipes are as good as they are beautiful. They combine the WDC standard of goodness in the bowl, and the lasting beauty of a Triangle Bakelite bit.

There is no substance known to science more suitable for pipe stems, cigar and cigarette holders than Triangle Bakelite. It possesses all the advantages of natural amber but none of the failings.

It has the beautiful coloring of amber - brilliant, rich and translucent - but excels in that it is tougher and more durable than amber. It has neither taste nor odor and is non-inflammable.

The bowls of the WDC Triangle Pipes are genuine French briar, specially Demuth seasoned and guaranteed against cracking or burning through.

Men who want something distinctive in a pipe will find a variety of select shapes in WDC Triangle Pipes, at the better grade shops, at $1.00 and up. Also a wide selection of gicar holders at 50c and up, and cigarette holders at 35c and up, in many beautiful shapes.
