Italian Estates: Ardor Spirale Bent Apple (2018) Tobacco Pipe

Product Number: 004-006-35098

Spiral carving is quite the unique feature, though it's a fairly common theme among Italian makers and marques. From Castello to Becker, they all have their own unique style and variation. Ardor, likewise, has their own version as well: a series of deeply carved grooves and smooth polished spirals that seem to emulate the look of a shell. This is especially apparent when the finish dresses shapes like this sinuous bent Apple. The plump bowl and sweeping heel of this piece leave ample space for the carved stummel to showcase plenty of texture, and the visual effect sees a striking upward momentum rise through the fore of this pipe. A stylish tapered stem of swirling blue acrylic tops this piece off and introduces a wealth of contrast, making for a pipe that's sure to stand out in your rotation.
