Italian Estates: Ardor Erro Smooth Billiard (500) (30) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 004-006-36840
While Ardor is typically known for their whimsical shaping and flashy accoutrements, the Italian workshop also produces sleek, streamlined designs like this elegant Billiard. The bowl here stands at the fore of a slender, arrow-straight shank-and-stem arrangement, and boasts a plump, rounded heel that tapers to a comparatively taut rim. Lightweight and comfortable in hand, this piece keeps things understated, allowing the shaping and finishing work to take center stage. Dressed in a auburn smooth finish, the stummel displays some fetching flame grain across the flanks of the bowl.--Davin Hylton
