This is the first Brebbia 949 we have ever received (no matter the series) and, personally, I am quite smitten with the shape. There is a neoclassical grace within the form which reminds me of the Pesaro school. Don't bother looking for putty or fillers, this pipe has none. After all, it is called a "Pura" for a reason. Produced from briar with longer seasoning, and adorned with some stunning mounts, a Pura is a pipe that any collector can be proud of.
