Butz-Choquin: Churchwarden Balzac

Product Number: 002-010-0568

"I am about to become a genius", Honore de Balzac exclaimed to his sister, after conceiving the "La Comedie Humain", a enormous series of books meant to paint a panoramic portrait of all aspects of society. In the Churchwarden Balzac, Butz-Choquin has achieved something truly special, as well. Harkening back to the smoking instruments of Balzac's era, it bears the shank-cusp and pointed heel that are so characteristic of the old clay pipes. Where liberty was taken, is in the more modern Billiard-like bowl, finely blended in to look very natural, and with a chamber that is surprisingly deep.
