Italian Estates: Castello Collection Billiard (KKK) (2020) (Unsmoked) Tobacco Pipe

Product Number: 004-006-39364

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 Billiard is a fine example of the talents of Castello's carvers, its muscular bowl housing a fairly capacious chamber atop a rounded heel flattened just enough to allow it to sit sturdily upright. The bowl is paired to a gently tapering shank-and-stem combination which lends the aft side of this pipe a sleek character and places further emphasis on the bowl. A hearty and handsome pipe, its stummel is here dressed in the warm, smooth stain of the workshop's Collection finish, showcasing a wealth of handsome grain across all of its surfaces.
