American Estates: D.R. Franc Sandblasted Bent Dublin (Unsmoked) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 004-009-18457
This bent Dublin from Utah-based carver D.R. Franc is a striking rendition of the classic shape, pairing a stout, rotund bowl to a curling diamond shank and a stylish saddle stem, the latter of which is curved for a comfortable smoking posture. A lifted heel thrusts the bowl into visual prominence and marks the start of a subtle flaring that carries upward to the broad, ridgeline-wrapped rim. The bowl and shank's rigid lines reinforce the shape's muscular build and add a touch of structure to the form. A dark sandblast dresses the stummel and highlights an impressive display of grain about the bowl, while a mouthpiece of grey and yellow vulcanite tops off the design and adds a splash of color to the pipe's reserved palette.--Davin Hylton
