Becker: Smooth Dublin (Royal Flush) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-007-0870
Third-generation carver Federico Becker, following in the footsteps of his father and grandfather, fashions high-quality pipes from premium briar. This Dublin is a fetching example of Becker's style, which tends to prioritize sleek lines and handsome finishes. Standing at the fore of a streamlined shank-and-stem arrangement, the bowl here rises from a flat heel and flares toward a wide rim. The entire bowl possesses a subtle forward-ebbing momentum that immediately captures the eye and imbues the entire composition with a dynamic appearance in profile. The shank-and-stem arrangement keeps things refined and subdued along the shape's aft side, with the bowl taking up more of the visual weight within the overall form. A warm, honey-hued smooth finish dresses the stummel and highlights fine strands of flame grain that rise in concert with the bowl's upward expansion. A striking design that can't help but charm, this piece will be a welcome addition to any collector's rotation, and it's earned Becker's highest grade of Royal Flush.--Davin Hylton
