Danish Estates: Tonni Nielsen Smooth Bent Dublin with Rosewood and Boxwood (Viking) (2018) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 004-001-33113
At the age of 16, Tonni Nielsen started his pipe making career at the famed W.Ø. Larsen workshop, where he studied under Danish greats like Hans "Former" Nielsen and Teddy Knudsen. After nearly a decade at Larsen, Tonni Nielsen set out on his own, establishing a workshop in the basement of his home. His keen eye for shaping, finishing, and engineering are on display with every pipe he crafts, reflecting his decades of experience and ability to get the most out of a given block of briar. This bent Dublin is a fine testament to Tonni and his style, and it bears Nielsen's coveted "Viking" grade, reinforcing its prestigious character.
Tall, stocky, and quite curvaceous, this bent Dublin features a bowl that rises from its lifted heel to its broad, ridgeline-wrapped rim. The lifted heel thrusts the bowl into visual prominence and lends the overall form a dynamic stance in profile. A pair of ridgelines descend from the fore of the bowl, wrap under the heel, and cover the bottom of the shank, their trajectory highlighting the stummel's consistent and pronounced undercurve. Horizontally compressed, the teardrop-shaped shank offers some subtle contrast to the bowl's rounded contours and keeps the aft side of the composition quite slender. A warm, traditional smooth finish dresses the stummel and highlights streaks of flame grain that flow across the bowl's flanks to a rim populated with birdseye. An accent of rosewood and boxwood accent the stem base and provide a touch of vibrant color to the composition for further visual appeal.--Davin Hylton
