Estate Pipes: American Estate: Unknown Spot Carved Paneled Sitter  

Product Number: 004-009-5837

Though unstamped, the American carver who created this rather swag shape was no wet-behind-the-ears neophyte working with a kit. Pairing of stem with composition aside (which was probably a fast way of getting what he considered a bodge out of the shop quickly), this shape has a great deal of game about it, leaving me wondering if possibly (just possibly) this is the early work of a present-day journeyman caver. The panels and bevels show a fine execution and symmetry, and the grain... Well, I think I can still hear echos of the carver's anguished scream, as he started to hit irregularities that would force rustication. While the grain in this pic is solid, the striations on the right side might bring a tear to Claudio Cavicchi's eye.
