Italian Estates: Luigi Viprati Smooth Billiard (One Clover) Tobacco Pipe

Product Number: 004-006-41935

From carving a single briar pipe in his leisure during his military service in 1972, Luigi Viprati sparked a lifelong passion for pipe making. Over the years, Viprati would continue to hone his craft, gaining a thorough understanding of Italian neoclassical design. This Billiard from Luigi Viprati is a more reserved offering from his portfolio, though it still exudes an Italian character in its shaping. The bowl stands at a subtle forward cant, with smooth walls rising from heel to rim. Out back, a balanced shank transitions from the bowl and carries a gentle taper through the stem, the arrangement lending a touch more visual weight to the bowl. Additionally, this piece features a flattened underside, granting this pipe both a sleek profile and a sure-sitting foundation. Dressing the stummel is a smooth, chestnut stain that displays windswept vertical grain.
