Castello: Collection Great Line Bent Dublin (KK) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-386-4838
Castello's "Great Line" designation is reserved for pipes that are a good bit larger than others produced by the Italian workshop, making this rather svelte bent Dublin somewhat unique. That being said, it's not only set apart due to its rather willowy build and more compact dimensions, but for its almost Danish Fancy-style shaping. The bowl is the focal point of this piece, and it's hard not to be, as it rises to over two inches in height and presents with a floral bloom to the rim. This blossoming effect is furthered by the slight taper to the walls as they reach toward the waist, creating a slightly pinched look as they then erupt outward and upward, terminating in a broad expanse of plateau-crowned briar. In comparison, the shank and stem are positively gracile, with the former upturned neatly before meeting the latter's gentle curve, not only lending a comfortable smoking posture but a poised stance that carries momentum to the bowl. A warm, smoky contrast stain dresses the stummel, courtesy of the Collection series, and unveils dense streaks of flame grain wrapping around the bowl, its hues complimented by the black stem.-John McElheny
