Italian Estates: Mastro de Paja Partially Rusticated Bent Bulldog (Gigante) (OB)
Product Number: 004-006-25113
Stamped "Gigante," this bent Bulldog is a large pipe from Mastro de Paja, fitting well into the Italian design tradition of fashioning larger renditions of classic English shapes. The proportions remain consistent, with the shank echoing the bowl's stoutness. The dual finish draws further focus to the immense size — the beadlines and domed rim smooth-polished to contrast the rest of the stummel's dark rustication. Furthermore, the Italian workshop has utilized a saddle stem to great effect as it draws the eye to the visual weight dominated by the bowl and shank.-Truett Smith
