German Estates: Joura Smooth Dublin (Infinity A) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 004-005-6344
Karlheinz Joura is known for crafting rounded, plump, pieces, with this piece being a fine example. The shape itself is a bit of an outlier in the German artisan's portfolio. It fits in well, though, with the carver's signature style, as the triangular shank presents a touch or sturdiness, but without extending into the heel as seen on many of Joura's pieces. The hearty, slightly canting bowl boasts a broad, flaring rim that displays a wealth of beautiful birdseye, while Joura's proficiency and penchant for carving a piece that presents stellar straight grain is also realized beneath the warm, honey-hued stain. A mesmerizing work of art, this Infinity A pipe is certain to appeal to a discerning collector.-Angela Robertson
