Caminetto: Carved Cauldron (05) (AT) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-011-0749
The Cauldron shape is one that's readily associated with Italian pipe making, although carvers and marques from other countries have been known to put their own unique spin on the whimsical design. Caminetto has presented an excellent rendition with this piece. At its roots, the Cauldron resembles a plump Apple with a pinched waistline, stylistically contrasted by the rim, which is raised high and flares dramatically. There's no shortage of chamber to be found within the towering bowl, while the well-bent saddle stem allows for comfortable clenching. It's a thoroughly Italian design with plenty of playful whimsy, presented by an esteemed Italian workshop and further enhanced by its unique, carved stummel. This carving manifests as a floral design beneath the bowl, cradling the lower portion of the bowl itself and pushing out in a three-dimensional manner near the waist, the briar stained a deep auburn that showcases handsome grain.-John McElheny
