Danish Estates: Bentley Former Design Sandblasted Billiard (ROM 97) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 004-001-33257
Originally designed by Hans "Former" Nielsen, Bentley pipes offer quality artisan craftsmanship at an affordable price point, much in the same way as Tom Eltang's Sara Eltang series. This Billiard showcases the refined shaping and deft finishing work found in the Bentley series. Standing at the fore of an slender shank-and-stem arrangement, the bowl here possesses a wide heel that tapers upward to a flat, taut rim. The reduced diameter of the shank-and-stem arrangement keeps this piece incredibly lightweight, and it aids in producing a sleek, understated appearance in profile. A dark sandblast dresses the stummel and brings vivid definition to the briar's natural grain, highlighting an impressive display of birdseye on either flank of the bowl.--Davin Hylton
