Danish Estates: Jess Chonowitsch Smooth Billiard with Silver
Product Number: 004-001-17761
A lesson in proportions and color palette alike, this Billiard from Jess Chonowitsch is a stunning example of the form and testifies to the importance of hue in a pipe composition and how it can elevate the shape itself. Per Chonowitsch's typical Danish conventions, the bowl tapers toward the rim for soft-lined appreciation, and it displays an impressive array of flame grain. The shank and stem are balanced in length behind and afford a streamlined nature, with the cumberland stem continuing the palette initiated by the stummel's dark chestnut tones. Such color balance coheres the entire piece, with just enough contrast and flash offered by the sterling silver accent band.-Truett Smith
