Italian Estates: Castello Collection Great Line Horn (KKKK) (2022) Tobacco Pipe

Product Number: 004-006-38255

Italian workshop Castello has a rich history that stretches back to 1947 with its founding by Carlo Scotti, being established as one of the first Italian brands to offer high-quality handmade pipes to the general public. In the 1960s, following the addition of Luigi Radice and Peppino Ascorti to their team of carvers, Castello's pipes began to take on a form that was quite different from the Anglo-French classics that they and others had been producing. The Italian neoclassical style which they had begun to develop led not only to a shaping renaissance within Italy, but the production of a number of now iconic profiles. This Horn belongs to one of Castello's largest size designations: the Great Line. As a member of the Great Line, this pipe measures in at more than six and a half inches long, and it thoroughly dramatizes the proportions of the archetypal Horn shape. The consistent expansion of the pipe is present, with a measured flare from the button to the transitional area, though the bowl itself takes on an expressive, blooming growth out to a tall rim crowned with rugged plateau. A sweeping heel supports the bowl, itself the fore portion of a consistent undercurve that the shank and stem begin: this shank and stem offering a subtle bit of curvature to the silhouette. Dressed in the warm stain of the Collection finish, this pipe showcases handsome grain throughout, the black acrylic of the stem keeping the palette here rather reserved.
