Claudio Cavicchi: Smooth Bent Apple (CCCC) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-400-2772
Something of a hybrid shape, this piece from Caludio Cavicchi pairs a voluptuous Apple bowl to a vertically inclined shank-and-stem arrangement reminiscent of a Cavalier design. The broad, hearty bowl cants forward from its position on the shank, ebbing outwards while the shank and stem bend more toward the aft of the design. In typical Italian neoclassical style, the bowl possesses most of the composition's visual weight, its sheer size overshadowing the trim proportions of shank and stem. The stummel wears one of Cavicchi's warm, affable, honey-blond smooth finishes, which showcases handsome steaks of flame grain across all sides of the bowl, making it clear why the Italian artisan stamped this piece with four Cs.--Davin Hylton
