Sale!  Italian Estates: Mastro de Paja Smooth Bent Bulldog (Media) (3A) (Sun) (Unsmoked)

Product Number: 004-006-9688

The Bulldog is a shape definition pipemakers often take creative liberty with, creating a myriad of compositions that bear little resemblance to the original, beyond having a square shank and a bead-line or two somewhere on the bowl; however, in this variant, creative liberties seem to be split evenly with tradition, forming something rather timeless. Broad-rimmed, highly perched, the bowl on this softly formed Bulldog neatly tapers down to an easy-flowing shank and stem transition - with the faint ghost of a Calabash materializing in the briar, and a gesture not uncommon in some Dublin variations.
