Castello: Old Antiquari Acorn with Silver Stand (KK)
Product Number: 002-386-4454
Castello tends to fashion bent versions of the Acorn, making this straight rendition something of a rarity. The Old Antiquari sandblast dresses the stummel, drawing out rich stacks of growth rings that accentuate the gentle taper of the bowl and its firm heel. The sandblast lends the piece a shadowy complexion, save for the rim and the name plate left smooth and brightly stained for some handsome accents in profile. The trim shank-and-stem combination adds a willowy note out back, bolstering the stature of the softly rounded bowl and anchoring most of the visual weight to it. The bright, flashy silver accent completes the visual aesthetic of the pipe, reminiscent of a more vibrant dress pipe style, but the accent band also boasts a utilitarian purpose: a stand unfolds from it, allowing the piece to sit sturdily on a flat surface. Lightweight in hand, this piece possesses a streamlined design that captures the eye.--Davin Hylton
