American Estates: Ryan Alden Sandblasted Morta Bent Apple with Bakelite (Queen of Hearts) Tobacco Pipe

Product Number: 004-009-17995

This is a pipe full of firsts for Ryan Alden. Not only is it one of Alden's first to feature a stem fully fashioned from bakelite, but this particular bent Apple is also the very first morta pipe we've received from the Texas-based artisan. Stylistically, it fits into Ryan's aesthetic and compact style, presenting an affably rotund bent Apple in a plump yet pocketable package. It measures in at under four and a half inches in length, but the bulbous waistline and thick insulating walls fill the palm comfortably and heartily. Perfect for such a shape, the sandblasted morta displays the dense material's unique grain pattern for a stimulating, striated texture that's a delight in hand. With a muted, jet-black hue, the morta pairs handsomely with the Kelly green, bakelite stem and shank end accent. It's a piece that beautifully marries old-school shaping with a modern touch of alternate materials and contrasting color palette. Impressive work from Alden.
