Italian Estates: Savinelli Marron Glace Smooth (602) (6mm) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 004-006-35664
Trimmer and more lithe than is usual in typically robust Italian design, Savinelli's "602" is a bent Billiard with more of a Danish flair, especially noticeable in the sweeping curves of the piece in silhouette. The somewhat longer stem returns us to Italian territory, contributing to a sporty and active character, as appropriate in a sports car as in an armchair.
Marron glacé is a delectable confection consisting of specially selected chestnuts encased in sugar syrup and glazing that traces its origins back to southern France and northern Italy. The labor-intensive presentation, which results in the chestnuts shimmering as if encrusted in translucent ice, has elevated marron glacé above being merely a candy, but as a prestigious culinary art used in many desserts. Celebrated in the works of Marcel Proust and Saki, marrons glacés have been a treat associated with tantalizing decadence for centuries. In Savinelli's homage to the heralded confection, the Italian marque's Marron Glace series features the rich brown hues of its namesake, paired with an acrylic stem of marbled jade and onyx tones. It joins the likes of the Miele, Liquirizia, Caramella, and Vaniglia series, rounding out Savinelli's sweets-inspired lines.- Chuck Stanion
