Castello: 'Castello' Bent Billiard (KK) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-386-4611
The well-respected Castello workshop has been producing high-quality, beautifully finished, efficient smoking instruments for more than 70 years now, with this bent Billiard being a fine example of the artisans' talents. The tall, rounded bowl houses an impressive chamber capacity for favorite blends, while a high-set transition is followed by a high-reaching, far more slender, sinuous stretch of shank and downturned stem. Proportions here are rendered in the dramatic contrasts of Italian neoclassic style, the robust bowl dominating the arrangement in back. This piece is dressed in one of the workshop's honey-blonde, smooth stains, highlighting fetching birdseye on the right flank and heel, while wispy tendrils of flame grain streaks along the left.-Angela Robertson
