Italian Estates: Posella Smooth Egg (L3) (Unsmoked) Tobacco Pipe

Product Number: 004-006-40565

This is an impressively stout briar from Posella, the Italian workshop infusing this piece with a considerable amount of substance and a decidedly neoclassical look. The bowl stands at the fore of this pipe as a monolithic outcropping of briar, its nearly two and a half inches in height and impressive breadth lending it an imposing feel in hand. Despite the impressive height and heartiness of the bowl, the overall length here of four and a half inches keeps the pipe compact and chubby, fostering a charming aesthetic and striking outline. The transition is wide and gives way to a thick, tapering shank which diminishes to meet a sleek saddle stem of black acrylic. The pairing here balances the bowl rather well given their thickness, though the bowl's impressive height and the shank's short length lend this pipe a look reminiscent of the Stack. A rounded heel supports the bowl's low-set waist and softly forward-canting taper to the rim, the impressive build here offering plenty of canvas to showcase the stummel's warm stain. Said stain reveals stunning birdseye on the flanks of the bowl, with the right flank in particular being densely packed, while the midsection is wrapped with cross grain.
