Italian Estates: Castello Old Antiquari Great Line Bent Dublin (KK) (Unsmoked)
Product Number: 004-006-29960
An excellent example of Castello's fairly whimsical, indelibly Italian approach to shaping, this Great Line bent Dublin presents a fine balance of muscular proportions and a playful sense of line. The bowl is quite muscular and displays a firm, jutting heel underneath, a signature cue from the Cantù workshop. The rim is crowned in craggy plateau, lending the piece a subtle dose of organicism and some excellent visual textural as well. The shank-and-stem combination is comparatively trimmer, displaying a gradual taper from the transition toward the lip button. Finished in the crisp texture of the Old Antiquari, a striking array of undulating grain wraps around the bowl's flanks beneath the warm, tan stain. This unsmoked composition is an ideal choice for the devoted Castello collector or anyone seeking to experience an expertly crafted piece that showcases the rich tradition of Northern Italian pipe making.- Jeffery Sitts
