Alexander Tupitsyn: Partially Sandblasted Bent Dublin with Ivorite Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-622-0087
Recognized as the work of Alexander Tupitsyn, this particular bent Dublin rendition is a staple within the Russian carver's portfolio. The proportions and specifics may differ, but the characteristic elements remain consistent; namely, the elongated shank, subtle S-curve, and how the shank's underside continues through the heel and makes for a pointed, protruding-like motif in profile — kind of like a Volcano, but with the bowl flaring toward the rim, rather than tapering. Tupitsyn often changes the shaping of the shank across different versions, and in this particular iteration, he's opted for one of Bulldog-like, diamond cross section, but with the flanking ridgelines neatly paneled for further architectural appeal. The finish is classy and formal, featuring a dark-stained, ring grain-adorned sandblast of subtle texture accented by a smooth-polished, inflated rim and creamy white ivorite at the stem base.-Truett Smith
