English Estates: James Upshall Smooth Dublin (P) (FH) (6) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 004-002-33904
Strikingly svelte and remarkably light for its overall length of nearly seven inches, this straight Dublin from James Upshall displays the talent of the English workshop quite well. Not only this, but the profile here is wonderfully imaginative, featuring changes to the chart-standard shaping that you would come to expect from Anglo-French marques. The stem is a svelte stretch of black, tapered vulcanite that's paired to a low-lying oval shank which ebbs out from a wide transition, more than accepting of a draped digit. The bowl here sits atop a pronounced heel and pinches at a mid-set waist before flaring out to a broad rim, affording the hand an easy indexing point for comfortable holding. Dressing the briar here is a warm walnut-hued stain that reveals handsome grain throughout, with birdseye covering the entire left side of the bowl.-John McElheny
