Italian Estates: Castello Pezzo Unico Collection Great Line Fiammata Bent Dublin (Stellato) (23.10.1975) (with Case) (Unsmoked)
Product Number: 004-006-26707
Pezzo Unicos represent the highest echelon of Castello's offerings — boasting beautiful, consistent grain and perfect shaping. What's more, they're also favorites of sorts, pieces with which Franco "Kino" Coppo feels a strong emotional or artistic attachment. As you might expect, they are rare breeds, indeed. On average, we receive around one or two in any given year, and the "Stellato" stamp makes this one all the more desirable.
Stellato, you see, is the designation given to a piece which never leaves the factory, instead finding a new home within Castello's museum, a sanctum sanctorum of pipe making excellence. Originally produced in October of 1975 (the 23rd, to be exact), it's a testament to the consistency of Castello's overall aesthetic, featuring much the same proportions and line work you'd expect to find on a current production piece. The finish, however, is where you can see it's true age, having developed a warm patina over the years. It comes nestled within its own presentation box of inlaid briar, handcrafted by one of the workshop's retired artisans. This is a once in a lifetime opportunity, folks. Don't pass it up.- Andrew Wike
