Italian Estates: Savinelli Venere Smooth (412 KS) (6mm)
Product Number: 004-006-26060
Like the "401" Savinelli's "412 KS" is a fairly classic rendition of the traditional Dublin shape, the form arrow straight through the shank and stem, with the upright bowl flaring conservatively above. Where the two designs differ is in their sizes: The "412 KS," seen here, is considerably more robust and offers a deeper chamber. For fans of the Dublin who appreciate hearty substance, the "412 KS" is the perfect choice, while those who prefer a more svelte style will enjoy the "401."
The inspiration for Savinelli's Venere series comes from Sandro Botticelli's 15th century painting, The Birth of Venus. The painting, currently featured in the Uffizi Gallery in Florence, is perhaps the most recognizable depiction of the Roman goddess ever created. With long, blonde hair enveloping a voluptuous figure and skin as fair as sea foam, the representation follows the ancient Greek motif of Aphrodite's origins. In accordance with its Italian heritage, Savinelli pays homage to the Florentine painter and his magnum opus with the Venere line, featuring pipes finished in either a dusky, auburn rustication or, in this case, a honey-blonde stain that illuminates the briar's natural grain with a bright brass band accenting the stem base.-Truett Smith
