Ardor: Mercurio Fantasy Blowfish Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-004-3238
The Blowfish is a shape which is seldom seen from the Roveras of Ardor, with the profile being seen primarily from Danish and Japanese artisans. Additionally, this piece, being from an Italian workshop, is uniquely stylized, with the pair of panels on the flanks iconic to the shape rendered with the addition of a fluting channel on the right side, while the ridges that surround both it and the left are quite subtle. Ridges frame the underside of the shank as well, while the top is left rounded for plenty of rich textural contrast that extends into the hardwood-accented stem base. The stem here is classic jet-black acrylic saddle that steppes down swiftly from the base, with is coloration providing some lovely contrast against the accents and the smooth auburn hue of the stummel, the Mercurio finish revealing some handsome licks of flame grain all around.-John McElheny
