Italian Estates: Ascorti Business Bent Billiard Tobacco Pipe

Product Number: 004-006-41556

In his youth, Roberto Ascorti became well-acquainted with the craft of pipe-making thanks to his father Giuseppe Ascorti. He initially helped his father while attending the Art Institute, eventually wanting to work full–time in pipe making at the age of 22. However, since his father's factory had no room, Roberto founded the Ascorti marque with the support of his family. This hearty bent Billiard from Ascorti is a more plump interpretation of the classic shape. The bowl's walls curve upward from a rounded heel and gently taper toward a smooth rim, creating a Brandy-like figure that fills the hand comfortably. Out back, a high-kicking shank-and-stem arrangement pairs to the bowl for a comfortable jaw-hanging posture. Dressing the stummel is Ascorti's iconic Business rustication, granting this piece a dark, craggy complexion that contrasts nicely with the stem's shimmering, peach-hued acrylic.
