Estate Pipes: Italian Estate: Ardor Mercurio Fantasy Smooth Bent Rhodesian (Damiano Rovera) (2005)  

Product Number: 004-006-9385

I almost didn't recognize this pipe as an Ardor. The quirky acrylic mount and sterling silver tenon accent gave it away, but the bowl looks nothing less than Danish, reminiscent of Eric Nording's high grades. The thick triangular shank, however, recalls some pieces I've seen from Savinelli or even German brands like Vauen, who favor the muscularity of its angles. The grain is very nice, as you can plainly see, and the stain lets its natural beauty shine brightly, as opposed to Ardor's usual palette and finishes, which typically results in anything but understated.
