Savinelli: Autograph Smooth Dublin with Gold Band (6) (6mm)
Product Number: 002-033-14688
Now my friends, you have certainly seen the full capacity of Savinelli's pipe making ability. Behold this Autograph Dublin, clearly the dominate form - the other, the ghost of a Billiard, faintly materializing in the heel. The slant of the bowl has ascended the front face, rendering the profile of the piece more sharply masculine. The slight alteration also generates a strong dynamism, especially when paired with the convexly squared shank which thrusts forward, the bowl seemingly whisking back by the abrupt start.
The grain in this Billiard is immaculate, but that is to be expected in an Autograph; the 18k gold accent, however, is quite unexpected, as this will be the first to grace our archives, aside from a Bulldog of lesser quality which came to us in estates. With an expert mixture of copper, silver, and of course pure gold giving the band the signature warmth of the precious metal, the metalworker then saw it fit to cool it with an inlay of silver, fraying the edges creating the delicacy found in Victorian-era fabric. It is a mark of distinction, celebrating the shape, but also gloriously emerging by its own merit.
