Danish Estates: Bjarne Nielsen Handmade Smooth Acorn with Bamboo Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 004-001-21845
A striking design, this Acorn from Bjarne Nielsen features a heavy-set bowl with a flared rim and a steady downward taper to a sharp, pronounced heel. The abbreviated shank is extended by two knuckles of vibrant bamboo that give way to a briar spacer and an arcing saddle stem of jet-black vulcanite. The organic material lends a touch of warmth to the composition that really captures the eye and harmonizes well with the traditional smooth finish of the stummel. Said finish highlights tight licks of flame grain on either flank of the bowl and pinpricks of birdseye over the rim. The overall composition is rather handsome, and it's a fine example of everything that makes Danish pipes so charming: elegant line work, soft features, and intriguing palettes.--Davin Hylton
