Ardor: Mercurio Poker (Dorelio Rovera)
Product Number: 002-004-1812
Dorelio Rovera may be the present-day patriarch of the Ardor marque, but his seniority does not, as you can see here, necessitate he adopt a conservative attitude to design or composition. Colorful, fine-smoking instruments for enjoying favored blends are what Ardor is known for, after all. And so it's no shock to see that here, where Dorelio's own hands were responsible for the act of creation, we find a rather modernist take on the Poker, which borrows the rounded rim and bead-line of the Rhodesian to turn it into something with a Streamline Moderne feel for form - not to mention a lively lapis lazuli colored stem.
