American Estates: Thomas James Sandblasted Giant Rhodesian Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 004-009-18211
Thomas James's portfolio shows a versatile shaping style, ranging from organic, Danish designs to more classic forms that are fashioned in quite hearty proportions, with this Giant Rhodesian being a fine example of the latter. The more than palm-filling, towering bowl is replete with the domed rim and beadlines of the traditional design, while a muscular, rounded shank extends from a rather Danish-like, elongated transition. The entire length of this massive pipe is nearly eight inches, while the bowl rises to three. The Pennsylvania-based carver has dressed this piece in a dark sandblast and topped it with a handsome cumberland half-saddle stem.-Angela Robertson
