French Estates: Butz-Choquin Star Smooth Calabash (B)

Product Number: 004-003-5607

A tall bowl rises proudly at the front of this Calabash from Butz-Choquin, with the broad, softly inflated rim that favors the fore over the aft lending the piece a gestural poise in profile. The bowl tapers gradually to the rounded, subtly lifted heel, while the shank flares gently out of the low-slung transition. A shimmering, horn-hued mount bolsters the shank end and is fitted to an arcing mouthpiece of jet-black vulcanite. The stummel wears a handsome, ruddy-hued smooth finish that showcases some handsome streaks of the flame grain across one flank of the bowl.
