Danish Estates: Tao Smooth Billiard with Silver

Product Number: 004-001-18564

Known for carving robust, soft-lined pipes, Jens "Tao" Nielsen is among the most respected Danish artisans working today, having honed his craft from working with Erik Nording and Poul Ilsted. It's rare to come across a pipe designed by Nielsen on the estate market, making this a unique, welcome find. Shape-wise, this Nosewarmer Billiard pairs a Brandy-like bowl, with its generous chamber, supple curves and subtle taper toward the rim, with an abbreviated shank and stem for a rather stout disposition in shortened form. A ruddy contrast stain showcases the briar's fiery flame grain along the flanks and birdseye on the aft, with a bright silver band and beautiful cumberland stem completing the pipe's elegant aesthetic.
