Italian Estates: Savinelli Autograph Smooth Freehand (9) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 004-006-37911
Savinelli's Autograph line consists of select, high-quality pipes handmade from start to finish by the workshop's top artisans, who shape the pieces with particular creativity. This bent Freehand is a fine example of that unleashed talent, with its tall, stocky bowl displaying a sloping rim and robust, cylindrical shape. The heel features a series of spurs, the one by the fore curling upward like a wave, then segueing into the others. The final one is just beneath the low-set transition. Proportionally, the hearty bowl dominates the round shank in bold Italian style, while a downturned, jet-black stem shows off undulating patterns of its own at its base. Dressed in a warm auburn stain that highlights striking birdseye along the rim and fiery flame across the bowl, this is a deep-chambered piece that offers plenty of versatility.-John McElheny
