Italian Estates: Castello Old Antiquari Rusticated Bent Pot (SC) (55) (1950s-1960s)
Product Number: 004-006-22741
If you're looking for one of the most iconic shapes from one of the most venerable pipe makers in Italy, this Castello isn't one to miss. It's the classic "55" with its bold heel and jaunty down-turned mouthpiece, finished in the Old Antiquari's rugged rustication and a light stain, with a "fumed" rim. This is quite the vintage find too, having been fashioned sometime in the '50s or '69s. It's still in great condition for its age, though the chamber was over reamed and there's rim darkening and charring around the airway.- Andrew Wike
