Becker: Sandblasted Acorn (Two Clubs) Tobacco Pipe

Product Number: 002-007-0890

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 Acorn 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.

This piece boasts a tall bowl that flares from its pronounced pointed heel to its broad, rounded rim. As the bowl flares, it takes on a subtle forward cant that keeps the shape looking dynamic and active in profile. An incredibly lean shank-and-stem arrangement brings up the aft of the composition and keeps the design looking sleek and trim in profile. The bowl's elegant contours conform naturally to the hand, while the transition offers ample space to drape a digit. An earthy sandblast dresses the stummel and highlights gorgeous grain across the bowl's flanks, its reserved complexion mirrored by the cumberland stem's hues.
