German Estates: Bertram Safferling Smooth Freehand (1) Tobacco Pipe

Product Number: 004-005-6765

After manufacturing pipes for over 25 years in Stuggart, Germany Bertram Safferling would later move to Italy, opening his own workshop. With his background in the arts, Safferling was naturally drawn to the pipe-making discipline, his work showcasing a propensity toward whimsical, stylized Freehands, as seen here. This Freehand by Bertram Safferling pairs supple curves with crisp, pristine line work, making for a striking piece. Posed at the fore is a plump, squat bowl, with its oblong figure contouring well to the hand. An upturned oval shank emerges from the bowl, framed by sleek ridgelines as it carries a quick taper into a demurely downturned stem, the arrangement's gestural posture primed for comfortable smoking. The stummel wears a smooth walnut finish that reveals whorls of birdseye across the underside.
