Italian Estates: Savinelli Autograph Sandblasted Bent Billiard (5) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 004-006-35558
Savinelli's Autograph line is composed of shapes that fall outside of the Italian marque's standard shape chart. Each pipe in the series is handcrafted by one of Savienlli's most experienced carvers, and the resulting designs tend to be quite unique, as evidenced by this bent Billiard. Large and muscular, this piece features a tall, upright bowl that tapers from its plump heel to its taut rim, a shaping choice that immediately brings to my the Brandy shape. Out back, the shank-and-stem arrangement curls into a sinuous S-curve that encourages a comfortable smoking posture and adds a good deal of gesture to the pipe's profile. Dressed in a ruby-hued sandblast, the stummel displays some handsome growth rings across the flanks of the bowl.--Davin Hylton
