Danish Estates: S. Bang Smooth Bent Brandy (B)
Product Number: 004-001-18724
Balancing muscularity with elegance, S. Bang pipes are famed for their quality, impressive design, and unparalleled finishing. In this bent Brandy we have an excellent example of the work of Per and Ulf, the workshop's only two carvers. Steeped in Danish tradition, the bowl's waistline is set low, with the taper to rim subtle enough to remain soft. Around the transition, the bowl's cheeks become more prominent, while the transition itself is kept tight-knit, allowing the flow through the upward-inclined shank and stem to be steady and easy. The grain here is not to be overlooked, either — vibrant licks of flame dress the bowl, with a sea of birdseye both at the underside of the piece, as well as at the top of the shank and at the chamfered inner rim, all of which is finished in a warm contrast stain for maximum effect. Best of all, this piece is in excellent condition all around, and only lightly smoked.- Chuck Stanion
