Italian Estates: Ardor Giove Fantasy Bent Egg (DR) (2014) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 004-006-36163
This bent Egg from Ardor is a study in elegance. The tall, voluptuous bowl urges forward proudly out of a wide, sweeping transition, while the shank curls out toward the arcing saddle stem. The sinuosity of the shank, the way it snakes away from the bowl, lends the composition a flowing sense of line while also keeping most of the visual weight at the front of the composition. The plump bowl houses a capacious chamber, ensuring plenty of leisurely smoking sessions. A warm auburn stain dresses the stummel, courtesy of the Italian workshop's Giove finish, and reveals a wealth of handsome grain beneath, with dense streaks of flame grain wrapping around the left flank of the bowl. A silver band around the base of the mouthpiece offers further visual appeal, along with the crackling amber-hued stem and the matching accent at the shank end.--Davin Hylton
