Italian Estates: Ascorti Business Billiard with Silver Tobacco Pipe

Product Number: 004-006-40979

Ascorti is one of the most storied names in Italian pipe making. In 1959, Giuseppe Ascorti began working for Castello and then left to found his own workshop in 1969. Alongside Luigi Radice, Giuseppe founded Caminetto, where his son Roberto was first introduced to pipes. In 1980, Roberto was ready to get into pipe making as a profession, but the Caminetto workshop was full, so Roberto founded his own workshop and named it Ascorti. Soon after, Caminetto closed and Giuseppe came to work with Roberto at Ascorti, propelling the name to prominence. Ascorti pipes are best known for their bold proportions, handmade acrylic stems, and excellent smoking qualities. This Billiard is a handsome example of Ascorti's signature style, and it is dressed here in a dark rustication and is accented with silver.
