Ardor: Urano Ninfea Tomato with Silver
Product Number: 002-004-1817
While I can appreciate Ardor's larger briars from an aesthetic perspective, as well as in regards to their over reputation for fine smoking qualities, personally I'm more of mid-sized to small pipe man. As such, it shouldn't be a surprise to hear that the Ninfeas tend to be my favorites; since they're defined by the inclusion of a particularly slender style of sterling silver mount, these designs are generally much more gracile and modestly-sized than most Ardors. And gracile and modestly-sized proportions are indeed what Damiano Rovera presents us with here, in the form of a long-shanked, gently flowing bent Tomato, albeit one with a pretty generous breadth of bowl and chamber as well.
