Misc. Estates: Dirk Claessen Smooth Olivewood Bent Billiard (Unsmoked) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 004-008-8328
Belgian-born Dirk Claessen currently crafts pipes in Spain, his portfolio ranging from classic designs to more Freehand-like pieces. This bent Billiard is a fine example of the carver's skill in utilizing alternative materials, as the entire stummel is made of olivewood. The mesmerizing grain patterns and ink-on-sand hue elevates this pipe's handsome aesthetic and pairs well with the cumberland stem. Shape-wise, the tall bowl is poised at the end of a gestural, gently lifting shank that ebbs forth from an elongated transition. Presented unsmoked.-Angela Robertson
