Estate Pipes: Italian Estate: Ardor Giove Billiard (Dorelio Rovera)  

Product Number: 004-006-8655

This is a fairly sober rendition of a Billiard, which is odd thing to say when writing about Ardor--the Picasso of the pipe world, ever experimenting, ever shape shifting, never afraid to break up their own stylistic conventions. It's easy to forget that just a few years ago, Ardor's pipe shapes fell very much within the northern Italian oeuvre, which crops up from time to time, along with other foreign classics. This pipe is basically the quintessential English Billiard, perfectly proportioned from bowl to to shank, with, perhaps, some minor Danish influence,seen in the fullness of the cheeks. Its traditional design, however rare, is not the reason for its price jump--Dorelio Rovera is. As the longstanding legendary patriarch of Ardor, his hand carved pipes are highly sought after.
