Danish Estates: Jess Chonowitsch Rusticated Brandy
Product Number: 004-001-20258
It's impossible to overstate the significance and influence of Jess Chonowitsch's work on contemporary pipe making at large, as the Danish master has arguably contributed more to modern artisan shape renditions than any maker alive today. His style is built on a foundation of Danish functionalism, approached from an intrinsically minimalist standpoint. It manifests itself brilliantly in this Brandy shape, with the bowl's forward-urging momentum further accentuated by the rim's slightly slanted orientation and the gradual slope of the bowl's near side as it meets the transition. The rusticated finish on this piece is particularly noteworthy as Jess primarily makes smooth or sandblasted compositions, making this offering particularly rare and collectible. The stummel's earthy brown stain pairs handsomely with the tapered, cumberland stem, the mouthpiece's red and black tones emphasizing the rustic color palette of this piece. It's a truly remarkable pipe, one that's sure to be the centerpiece of any collection.- Jeffery Sitts
