Italian Estates: Ascorti New Dear Bent Billiard
Product Number: 004-006-23189
If you're familiar with Radice's Underwood finish, the New Dear from Ascorti should look pretty familiar. This particular style of deeply carved finish was a signature of Caminetto back during the Radice-Ascorti era, and both Guiseppe and Luigi simply carried it on after they each went independent. Found here on this bold and deep-chambered, Billiard, it makes for a pipe that's as texturally interesting in hand as it is well-balanced in profile, paired here to a striking, squared-off shank. Just some rim darkening and mild chamber carbonizing to note in the way of condition.-Truett Smith
