Italian Estates: Le Nuvole Smooth Acorn with Silver (4 Cloud)
Product Number: 004-006-24824
Before starting Le Nuvole in 1996, Maurizio Tombari was a respected pipemaker for both the Mastro de Paja and Ser Jacopo workshops. Literally meaning "the clouds," Le Nuvole is Tombari's line of artisan pipes. Here, the Italian carver presents quite the whimsical take on the Acorn, the shape's pointed heel spur dipping significantly below the shank. The bowl is incredibly tall, with the rim oriented in a slightly slanted manner and the shank positioned directly in the middle of the bowl. A bright sterling silver accent adorns the shank end before giving way to the gently downturned stem. Being a Grade "4," you would expect this pipe to have great grain and, judging by the tight, brilliant streaks of straight grain that cascade down the bowl, this pipe will certainly not disappoint.- Jeffery Sitts
