Danish Estates: Jess Chonowitsch Sandblasted Brandy with Boxwood Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 004-001-17242
Jess Chonowitsch is a living legend of Danish pipe making, and for good reason. A student of Sixten Ivarsson, Jess has an eye for proportions and details that imbues every piece with a sense of carefully considered elegance, and is even responsible for many of the shapes in Stanwell's shape chart. While this Brandy from the Danish master may initially appear to be simple and understated, every singular detail combines to form a macro-composition well-suited to the carver's heralded reputation. With its plump, low-set waistline, perfectly balanced proportions, subtle taper to the rim, and soft, flowing ripples of grain, this piece showcases why Chonowitsch's pipes are consistently sought after by collectors. The dark-stained, Danish-style sandblast is accented handsomely by a smooth-polished rim of auburn hue, while the shank is lent a striking presence thanks to the domed boxwood accent, offering a fine complement to the color of the rim. It's more than worthy to be a centerpiece in any collection or for anyone looking to experience a piece from one of the greatest pipe makers ever.- Jeffery Sitts
