American Estates: Micoli Spot Carved Billiard Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 004-009-19132
Micoli pipes were made most notably through the '70s and '80s by Robert Burns, an American artisan (not to be confused with the late, 18th century national poet of Scotland). His pieces were often wildly designed and ornately finished, typically in his signature rustication achieved via a handheld Dremel tool. This straight Billiard is one of the more reserved examples of this style of finish, being absent a striking Freehand form and featuring the carved finish in a partial dressing, rather than a full-carving. This spot carving textures the fore in a semi-circular shape, and the base of the wavering saddle stem in various dots, the smooth finish covering the rest of the stummel revealing some handsome grain and offering plenty of textural contrast.-John McElheny
