Italian Estates: Posella Smooth Dublin (F2 VIP) (Unsmoked) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 004-006-35366
Though it measures in at just over five and a half inches long, this straight Dublin from Vitaliano Posella is strikingly large, with a towering bowl and a pronounced muscularity throughout that speaks to its Italian neoclassical style. A thick shank is paired to the bowl via a wide transition, with its length possessed of a sleek taper that runs to the base of a black acrylic saddle stem. The slender nature of the saddle's bit keeps the focus here squarely on the bowl and offers a bit of levity from the robust proportions that occupy the rest of the composition. Up front, the bowl towers at nearly two and a half inches tall, sitting monolithic on a firm heel and taking on a rather reserved flare from there to a ridge that marks the territory of a domed rim. This rim reveals just how thick the walls of this pipe are, surrounding a hearty chamber and revealing a lovely flame grain pattern all around thanks to the smoky chestnut stain of the stummel, the rim itself populated by dense birdseye.-John McElheny
