Caminetto: Smooth Cauldron (05) (AT) Tobacco Pipe

Product Number: 002-011-0842

The Caminetto workshop was founded by Luigi Radice and Guiseppe Ascorti in the late 1960s, the pair establishing the brand after a lengthy tenure with Castello. Caminetto pipes quickly became a success, their unique design language cementing them as one of Italy's most respected makers. They've become especially renowned for their craggy rustications, with many of their pipes showcasing highly textural carving across their stummels. 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, staying true to their unique shaping style. 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, tapering 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 the striking, inky stain that dresses the stummel.
