Danish Estates: Jess Chonowitsch Smooth Billiard with Horn Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 004-001-33838
At less than five inches in total length, this piece is a compact take on the classic shape, its reduced size making it perfect for on-the-go smoking and or easy pocket-carry. That being said, even given its reduced reach, this piece maintains visually balanced, with the bowl, shank, and stem each contributing equally to the shape's overall build. The careful balance of proportion and line allows for each aspect of this composition to be regarded on its own. The bowl ,for instance, boasts a subtle taper from its heel to its rim, with this delicate cinching resulting in a low-set waistline that conforms naturally to the hand. The sturdy shank acts as a naturally extension of the bowl's heel and glides effortlessly outward before terminating at the sleek saddle stem. The mouthpiece continues the shank's implied line while slenderizing the composition's aft side a bit, a shaping cue that naturally leads the eye to stem base's horn accent. The horn's creamy hues deftly complement the stummel's auburn finish, which deftly showcases some handsome flame grain around the bowl.--Davin Hylton
