This is a big, masculine bent Pot from Savinelli. Bold, strong, clear lines define the shape, which seem to deviate towards the northern Italian masculine boldness that we frequently see on Savinelli's more expensive offerings. The nice rustication, dark auburn stain and black acrylic stem heighten this overall sense. The pipe sits on a flattened spot on the bottom of the shank, as one would expect from Savinelli's 'Standing' series.
