Butz-Choquin: Regence (1601)
Product Number: 002-010-0513
The Regence style was a transition in the decorative arts from the massive rectilinear forms of Louis XIV furniture to those prefiguring the Rococo style of Louis XV. From what I've researched, I really can't say that this pipe, in anyway, resembles the excess or intricacy of design of the Rococo movement, or even the transitory period known as the Regency, which was nearly as flamboyant. The only attribute I can attest to the name, is the restraint from monumental size and pomposity, which can definitely be felt in the simplicity of design, that and the penchant for exceptional craftsmanship.
