New Pipes: Castello: Old Antiquari Bent Egg (GG)  

Product Number: 002-386-1209

Easy in hand, lovely in profile, and very generous of chamber, this particular bent Egg variation is one of Castello's most iconic designs, second only to the bold-heeled "55" bent Pot, despite being quite a bit less common. Particularly rare is a virgin-finish example, like this one, where the briar has been left unstained. It's a seldom-seen style of presentation for artisans and artisanal marques as a rule, requiring as it does briar that has as few natural flaws as possible, and only the most minute at that (all briar has some manner of sandpit to be found, however small - it's just the nature of the medium). This is, of course, because any natural blemish you don't need a jeweler's loupe to spot will stand out far more readily without the presence of a stained finish.
