Italian Estates: Castello Collection Occhio di Pernice Dublin (2014) Tobacco Pipe

Product Number: 004-006-42745

Italian workshop Castello has a rich history that stretches back to 1947 with its founding by Carlo Scotti, being established as one of the first Italian brands to offer high-quality handmade pipes to the general public. In the 1960s, following the addition of Luigi Radice and Peppino Ascorti to their team of carvers, Castello's pipes began to take on a form that was quite different from the Anglo-French classics that they and others had been producing. The Italian neoclassical style which they had begun to develop led not only to a shaping renaissance within Italy, but the production of a number of now-iconic profiles. A decidedly gestural pipe, this Dublin from the Italian workshop features a gently bent stem and straight shank that transitions to an angular, forward-urging bowl. The lines of this pipe convey a gradual momentum, as an intensifying flare begins at the button and ends only at the rim. This pipe is dressed in the vibrant hues of the collection finish and has earned the grade of "Occhio di Pernice" which designates it for the phenomenal birdseye that can be seen across both flanks of the stummel.
