Italian Estates: Castello Old Antiquari Bent Egg with Copper and Brass Windcap (93) (KK)
Product Number: 004-006-25674
This Castello "93" bent Egg is a truly remarkable piece in many aspects and marks the first time we've seen a pipe from the venerable workshop accented that's features a windcap that wasn't crafted from sterling silver. The cap on this piece was fashioned from copper and brass and drilled with nine holes for ventilation, enabling this pipe to be smoked outdoors or for preserving a packed bowl for later. While it could possibly be an aftermarket addition, it matches well with the warm brown stain of the Old Antiquari sandblast, featuring ripples of wavy grain radiating across the left flank. Adding to this piece's versatility, it also features an acrylic military mount, allowing this pipe to be broken-down effortlessly. Condition-wise, there's some mild chamber carbonizing, charring around the airway, and the windcap does display some discoloration and small scratches along its surface.- Jeffery Sitts
