German Estates: Hermann Hennen Smooth Rhodesian with Bamboo Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 004-005-6380
While the Bulldog and the Rhodesian share identical bowls — marked by wrapping beadlines or ridges and a distinct taper toward the rim — the shanks are markedly different: The Bulldog's iconic diamond shank adds crispness and rigidity to the form, but the Rhodesian bears a standard, rounded shank for a more reserve disposition. This Rhodesian from Hermann Hennen, however, offers yet another distinctive element, extending the shank with two knuckles of darkened bamboo. Such a design choice maintains the Rhodesian's staple elements while adding individuality and uniqueness to this specific piece.-Truett Smith
