AKB Meerschaum: Carved Floral Bent Brandy (I. Baglan) (with Case)
Product Number: 002-574-4931
The bent Brandy has always been a favorite shape of mine, its hearty bowl, complete with slow taper toward the rim, supple curves, and alluring profile make for a pipe that is as much a pleasure to view as it is to smoke. This rendition from I. Baglan of AKB Meerschaum features everything I want in a pipe of this shape: a curling stem, a gently angled shank, a cheeked transition, and a robust bowl sitting on a sweeping heel. The stummel is carved with an intricate floral motif, fronds encircling the lower third and surrounding a flower, separated from the more complex carving above it, a display of standing lily-esque flowers, framed from behind with ranks of the same fronds, by a rattan-style weaving pattern. The top third of the bowl is lined with a strip of flower blooms, the relief carving standing out proudly, tying the piece together.-John McElheny
