Misc. Estates: Chekanov Rusticated Tomato with Antler Tobacco Pipe

Product Number: 004-008-34755

An extremely lightweight piece, this Tomato from Alexander Chekanov features a sleekly tapering stem of jet-black vulcanite that is fitted to a flared, softly ridgeline-wrapped extension of antler. This antler accent is married to a trim, low-lying stretch of shank whose transition is gently cheeked, especially on the left flank, contributing to a sleekness about the aft that is punctuated by the antler's soft flare. Up front, the bowl sits broad atop a slightly lifted heel, expanding out dramatically to a very wide waist that's rich with curves, arcing upward as it reaches to the rim. Said rim continues the curves of the bowl and is dipped in the middle, rising at the flanks for an extra bit of dynamism that ensures the visual weight here is squarely focused on the bowl. A ruddy rustication dresses the stummel here, creating a wealth of texture in the hand, though the rim is fumed, stained a smoky black that dissipates into the auburn tones of the briar around it.
