Danish Estates: Jess Chonowitsch Sandblasted Pot with Bamboo

Product Number: 004-001-9036

Jess Chonwitsch's work is easily amongst the most sought-after around, regardless of time period or specific school of design. The man's simply a master artisan, and, unfortunately for collectors, one who just doesn't make a whole of pipes, and who went through a lengthy hiatus as well. Rarity alone more often than not leads simply to obscurity, but rarity plus sublime quality is the sort of combination legendary status is made of. While I can't say that I've ever seen many Jess Chonowitsch briars, even working here at Smokingpipes, I will note that this one is quite a bit different than those other examples that I have handled. They were by and large trim and light, pocket-pipe sized affairs, whereas this straight Pot, despite being of handy length, features a bowl that is unabashedly broad both inside and out. It also happens to be covered in fantastic ring grain as well, of course - no big surprise given the name it bears. No doubt this is quite a flavorful smoker, though fortunately its previous owner didn't enjoy it recklessly; there's a bit of rim darkening, along the inner edges, but otherwise a cornerstone of the Danish influence on the world of pipe design.
