Italian Estates: Il Ceppo Freeline Smooth Bent Bulldog (6)

Product Number: 004-006-8947

Though the bowl and shank alone could pass as something of traditional Italian style, the stem of this Il Ceppo just says "Pesaro" to me. Part of that is the slender, turned-briar base, which reminds me of something out of Ser Jacopo's La Pipaccia series (shapes based off of the pipes of sailors Giancarlo Guidi spotted around Pesaro's port), and part of it is very gestural nature of the smooth, strong arch it presents.
