Becker: Sandblasted Poker (Two Clubs) Tobacco Pipe

Product Number: 002-007-0888

Federico Becker is a third-generation pipe maker whose late father and grandfather began the Becker workshop in the 1970s. The younger Becker has certainly come into his own in the carving world, marrying his elders' design styles with his own learned skills and creative vision. This fetching Poker is a fine example of Federico's astuteness as an artisan, offering the elegant lines and rich finishing work for which the workshop is known.

A practical, utilitarian design, this Poker sees a tall, cylindrical bowl posed at the fore of a lean, arrow-straight shank-and-stem arrangement. The bowl flares from its firm, sure-sitting heel to its broad rim, with this flare accentuating the bowl's sturdy posture and towering height. In Italian neoclassical fashion, the bowl holds most of the visual weight within the composition, its budding frame overshadowing the incredibly slender proportions of the shank and stem. In addition to being a useful desk pipe and a sleek, no-nonsense classic, this piece is also stylish, dressed as it is in an earthy, grain-defining sandblast.
