Italian Estates: Luigi Viprati Smooth Bent Egg (Four Clover)

Product Number: 004-006-9497

When Luigi Viprati makes an Egg, he crafts them with a profound minimalist aesthetic, concentrating on the shape itself: slimming down the shank to a sinuous line, and riding the piece of any and all superfluous excess. Here, he takes that to the extreme, giving us a pipe that holds very naturally in hand, with a smooth ridge running done the front axis of its sharply tapering, oval bowl. The shank and stem pierce the midsection, at a slight arc, not unlike the Hawkbill, the stem adding a bit of savory color to an otherwise subdued palette. The stamping reads a very welcome 'Four Clovers', ensuring you the some of the very best grain offered by Viprati.
