G.V.G stands for Georges Vincent Genod, who was the Grand Father of Jacques Craen,the maker of the Genod Pipe for many, many years. The GVG stamp ensures that that stummel is quite old as that stamp was changed when Jacques started making the pipes, likely circa 1960's. Jacques Craen, the original family owner of Genod pipes, found a number of these G.V.G marked stummels years ago in the "sub-basement" of the Genod factory, what a story that was! These were pre and turn of the century bowls (stummels) that he came upon and which were forgotten about from that time. courtesy pipesmagazine.com thread
