Italian Estates: Luigi Viprati Smooth Bent Tulip (Four Clover)

Product Number: 004-006-9559

Shape wise, this may well be in my top five favorite Viprati to date. Bowls that are highly compressed along the vertical axis do a great job of displaying grain, but they (inevitably) feel worrisome in my particular paw. This Viprati Four Clover is a wonderfully executed Amphora that features an amazing capelli d'angelo (angel hair) for close to 320 degrees around the bowl, as well as a fine birdseye on the rim. As a plus, bent configuration, combined with a curved shank, should make this pipe very manageable in the jaw.
