Italian Estates: Il Ceppo Smooth Bent Dublin with Silver Band (4)
Product Number: 004-006-9072
I doubt I've seen a more fluid gesture in a Picasso drawing. There is simply not a straight line on this pipe, and it carries the theme throughout. Looking at its variance in form, you can see a profound influence of the Pesaro school - the proportions elongated, slenderized, expanded and diminished. On the rim, take notice of the artisan's exhaustive attention to detail in which a slight depression has been added, sinking the platform into the chamber instead of corrupting the overall profile by leaving it flat, thus wonky. I must say that whoever buys this bent Dublin surely knows a great pipe when they see one, not to mention a great deal.
