American Estates: J.M. Boswell Jumbo Rusticated Bent Panel (2019) Tobacco Pipe

Product Number: 004-009-39216

J.M. Boswell is one of the United States' most dedicated pipe carvers, having begun his career in 1975 as an apprentice, before starting his own brand in 1980. Boswell additionally became an importer of briar, allowing him to not only supply stummels to the U.S. market, but acquire high-quality burl for his own work. J.M. works alongside his son Dan in the family's tobacco shop in Chambersburg, PA, where the two carve pipes by hand, their style running the gamut from subdued, Anglo-French classics, to strikingly large works of neoclassicism that draw on the Italian style. Nowhere is that better showcased than in the pipes within Boswell's Jumbo series, comprising many of the largest pipes that the carver offers, such as this bent Panel. A remarkably thick pipe, this piece comes in at seven and a half inches long and weighs over a third of a pound, offering an impressive heartiness and an imposing feel in hand. The bowl stands at more than two and a half inches tall from atop a rounded heel, framed by crisp panels as the walls rise and taper slightly to the rim. An extremely tight transition gives way to a thick, short shank met with a colorful acrylic saddle stem whose base is much longer than most other saddles. Dressed in a craggy rustication, the bowl showcases a wealth of texture to appreciate, while the smooth shank lends contrast to the composition.
