Caminetto: New Dear Bent Apple (07) (AT)
Product Number: 002-011-0569
Caminetto is a brand built on wordplay, established by Giuseppe Ascorti and Luigi Radice. In Italian camino means "fireplace" or "chimney," the words having obvious elements in common with pipes, and "Caminetto" being the diminutive form of the word. As such, Ascorti, Radice, and Gianni Davoli, who marketed Caminetto pipes, became known as I tre Camini, "The three chimneys," and with the brand's distinct logo and the three men's own mustaches, Caminetto's slogan was obvious enough — La Pipa del Baffo, "The Pipe with the Mustache." Offered here is sinuously bent, plump-bowled Apple dressed in the melting wax motif of the workshop's signature New Dear finish — a common, dramatic technique used throughout Italian pipe making. Not only does it offer a wealth of rich texture in hand, it'll be even more visually appropriate when a bowl full of tobacco is ignited. Further visual appreciation is encouraged by the vibrant, amber hues of the acrylic mount and downturned stem, which contrast the stummel's more traditional stain.- Jeffery Sitts
