Castello: Collection Fiammata Great Line Bent Dublin (1982)
Product Number: 002-386-4571
A stout, exceptionally large piece, this bent Dublin from Castello bears a "1982" stamp, denoting pipes that are crafted from briar that has been aged for nearly 40 years, making these designs rare and highly collectable. Boasting a rugged crown of plateau at the rim, which favors the fore more than the aft, lending the piece a bit of forward-ebbing momentum in profile, this piece offers a tobacco chamber well over two inches in depth, ensuring plenty of long, luxurious smoking sessions. This design bears the Fiammata designation, indicating pipes that display extraordinary flame grain, and its clear why, with tight bands of flame grain streaking from the firm heel to the rim on all sides of the bowl, leaving plenty of visual intrigue. The low-slung shank-and-stem combination bolsters the stout, statuesque bowl. The tapered stem of jet-black acrylic acts as a perfect complementary color to the coppery, earth-toned stain of the stummel, as it makes a subtle downturn. It's a muscular, elegant design with a subtle presence in hand that has plenty of room to drape a finger across the tight-nit transition.--Davin Hylton
