Danish Estates: Emil Chonowitsch Smooth Billiard
Product Number: 004-001-21331
Emil Chonowitsch was a Danish tobacconist that learned pipe making from Poul Rasmussen in the Suhr repair shop. Like Rasmussen, Chonowitsch focused on crafting traditional shapes, and his work showcases an affinity for handsome finishes and streamlined, minimalist designs. Passing in 1996, Emil has left behind a highly sought after portfolio of pipes, with his legacy continued and furthered by his son Jess Chonowitsch. This straight Billiard is an excellent example of Emil's work, possessing a tall, subtly forward-canted bowl that tapers gradually upwards from the firm, round heel to the taunt rim. The low-set transition and an arrow-straight shank-and-stem arrangement keep the design sleek and refined. The towering bowl houses a generous chamber capacity over two inches in depth, which should ensure some long, luxurious smoking sessions. Lightweight and graceful, this piece wears a stunning, dark chestnut-hued smooth finish that showcases some stellar whorls of birdseye across either flank of the bowl.--Davin Hylton
