Picta Magritte Sandblasted Bent Billiard (S2) (06)

Product Number: 002-171-1798

I'm a huge fan of the Picta Magritte series in general. Indeed, I'm just a big fan of René Magritte and seeing some of the shapes that he played with in his painting presented in three dimensions as real pipes by Ser Jacopo is just fantastic. This piece is a little more avant-garde than many of the shapes to have come out of this series. That's hardly surprising since Magritte tended to use fairly conventional shapes and juxtapose those for effect, so there aren't that many unusually shaped pipes presented in his work from which to draw. This piece certainly defies that convention.

Anyway, enough background and onto the pipe. The sandblast is deeply and boldly ring-grained, something accentuated by the two-tone, variegated stain. The Hawkbill-meets-Dublin shape is delightfully playful (and very Pesaro) and the whole composition is complemented by the stunning cast silver band that adorns all of the Picta Magritte series pipes (except the #20 shape, which has its own different silverwork). All in all, an absolutely lovely piece.
