German Estates: Rainer Barbi Smooth Bent Dublin (1981-1987) Tobacco Pipe

Product Number: 004-005-5097

Dated between 1981 and 1987, this piece crafted by the popular German carver Rainer Barbi showcases his penchant for flowing, elegant lines. It's miraculous that Barbi began his pipe making career as an autodidact because this pipe speaks to a certain mastery of the craft. The flared bowl begins a gradual taper from the softly inflated rim to a sweeping heel that carries into the curing shank-and-stem combination with subtle ease. The shank flares slightly out of the trim transition before meeting the gently arced saddle stem, offsetting some of the bowl's stouter proportions with a sinuous elegance. The pieces wears a refined contrast stain that encapsulates the lusciousness of the flame grain as it flows from the heel to the rim. The tapered cumberland stem harmonizes perfectly with the vibrancy of the stummel for a crisp, uniform aesthetic.
