Quite an unusual number for a Radice, this Billiard is positively diminutive; a perfect little pocket pipe about a fraction of the size of Luigi and sons' usual offerings. The shaping struck me as rather English in profile, but French when viewed dead-on due to the bowl's ever-so-subtle downward taper. Adam, however, pointed out that there are fine Danish pipes just like this, shaping-wise. Regardless, it's a fine piece, and beautifully grained.
