Danish Estates: Former Rusticated Billiard with Horn Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 004-001-19326
Though this Billiard is rather compact in terms of overall length, it ably demonstrates Hans "Former" Nielsen's decades of experience and immediately recognizable approach to traditional forms. Here it's finished in Former's signature rustication, its stacked, undulating striations creating a stimulating texture that does not compromise the underlying shape at all — rather, enhancing it with great effectiveness. The smooth, rounded rim offers some tasteful textural contrast while a creamy accent band of horn provides additional visual contrast against the rest of the piece's dark color palette. It's a pipe that designed to hold up to the rigors of daily life but without skimping on attention to shaping and engineering.- Jeffery Sitts
