Italian Estates: Ser Jacopo Smooth Bent Billiard with Silver (L2) (Maxima Maxima) (Unsmoked) Tobacco Pipe

Product Number: 004-006-38347

Founded in 1982 by Giancarlo Guidi, Ser Jacopo has built a reputation on crafting high-quality briars that are renowned for their robust proportions and playful shaping cues. The Italian atelier's style has since defined the Pesaro style of pipe making, each of their pipes imbued with a sense of character and reflecting the whimsical creativity that went into crafting them. Though Guidi passed away in 2012, his legacy lives on not only in the pipes he crafted, or the company he founded, but in the language of design that he helped to pioneer. A strikingly conservative offering from the Ser Jacopo workshop, this bent Billiard's shaping and movement of line remind me very much of the classic Anglo-French style, though with an undoubtedly Italian neoclassic sense of proportion. With its two "Maxima" stamps it's no wonder that this piece is a bit larger than others, especially when one looks at the shank in concert with the bowl. Their similar sense of proportion makes the overall shape quite muscular, the shank's upward curve positioning the smartly bent saddle stem for comfortable smoking. Robust in hand, this piece is sure to make itself a staple in your rotation, and the warm mahogany finish revealing lovely flame grain around the bowl ensures this, its good looks enhanced by a trim band of silver around the shank end.
