Italian Estates: Ardor Urano Bent Dublin (DR) (2021) (Unsmoked) Tobacco Pipe

Product Number: 004-006-42076

Though the Ardor pipes workshop was founded in 1974 by father-son team Angelo and Dorelio Rovera, the pipe-making history of the family stretches back to 1911, with the founding of Sociedade Rovera in Varese, Italy. It was here that Angelo began to carve pipes alongside his father and uncles, starting at the age of 13 in 1958, Ardor's debut into the pipe world marked by a high standard of craftsmanship that's remained consistent for nearly five decades. Though Angelo passed away in 1999, Ardor is now run by Dorelio, alongside both Damiano and Dimitri, the next generation of Roveras. Ardor's pipes are often typified by their strikingly neoclassical proportions, with each piece offering greatly enhanced substance about the bowl and a reassuring presence in hand. This bent Dublin boasts a rather willowy build, with a fluid, slender stretch of shank and stem that balance the presence of a boldly flaring bowl. Said bowl stands on a firm heel and expands as it reaches toward a domed rim, its fore wall jutting out just a bit further than the aft and creating a slight asymmetry that draws the eye. Dressed in the craggy rustication of the Urano series, there's plenty of texture to appreciate here, the earthy stain of the stummel matching the varied hues of the acrylic stem.
