Italian Estates: Radice Rind Bent Dublin (O) Tobacco Pipe

Product Number: 004-006-41835

This bent Dublin is a striking piece from Radice, complete with a lengthy stretch of shank and stem that do well to balance the presence of the bowl. This shank and stem curl out of a wide transition, the shank itself a rather trim stretch of briar that lifts to meet a demurely curved, tapering stem of black acrylic: its base accented with a vibrant, multicolored wood accent. Up front, the bowl stands atop a rather firm heel, growing walls that taper very gently toward the rim before expanding and flaring as they reach the rim proper. Dressed in a craggy rustication, the stummel is rich with texture to appreciate, the rim itself finished smooth and showcasing some handsome grain.

Luigi Radice was born in 1939 and began his career working with briar in 1961, finding employment at the venerable Castello workshop. While working for the now legendary brand, Luigi met Giuseppe Ascorti, and the two left together in 1968 to found Caminetto, where he stayed for 12 years, before departing to establish Radice in 1980. With help from his son, Gianluca, and his father, Paolo, Luigi began producing pipes in a striking neoclassical style which quickly amassed acclaim from enthusiasts of such stylized works. Luigi was later joined by his other son, Marzio, and the family-run workshop has since become known not just for their unique take on the neoclassical style of pipe making, but their singular accenting and finishing techniques.
