Italian Estates: Becker Smooth Bent Egg (Two Hearts) (1990-1995)

Product Number: 004-006-11660

With a small "b" on the stem and a big "Becker" on the shank, this smooth and handy Egg would have been made somewhere between 1990 and 1995, and therefore possibly during Paolo's earliest years making pipes on his own, after the passing of his father, Fritz, in 1991. While the shaping is very restrained compared to the kind of work you'd see later from Becker, particularly starting in the early-to-mid 2000s, the execution is still very neat — easy lines, natural balance in profile, and pretty sweet grain, too.
