Castello: Occhio di Pernice Collection Bent Apple (K) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-386-4754
This bent Apple boasts Castello's Occhio di Pernice stamp, a designation the Italian workshop reserves for briars with exceptional birdseye. Appropriately, this piece presents handsome fields of birdseye across either flank of the bowl, accentuated by a lively honey-blond stain and a glossy smooth finish. Shape-wise, this piece pairs a voluptuous, full-bodied bowl to a gently bent stretch of tapering shank and stem. The sleek, flattened lines of the oval shank-and-stem arrangement lend visual prominence to the bowl, in typical Italian neoclassical style. The plump, rounded bowl offers plenty of surface area for wrapping fingers, making it a delight to hold, and as this is a Castello pipe after all, the bowl's heel is jaunty and a touch pronounced at the fore. Charming, stylish, and full of gorgeous, eye-catching grain, this piece will no doubt become a stand-out in any collection.--Davin Hylton
