Claudio Cavicchi: Smooth Billiard (CCCC) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-400-2849
A rather more traditional, saddle-stemmed Billiard from Claudio Cavicchi, this piece features bold, Italian neoclassical proportions — the deep-chambered bowl receiving most of the visual weight and shaped with a particularly cylindrical style that accentuates its upright stance. The shank here pushes out from a wide transition and meets a rather lengthy saddle stem at a junction marked by a white accent, the stem itself made from a swirling black and orange acrylic. The shank showcases some unique shaping in the form of a slight pinch at the midsection, and this, paired to the sleek saddle stem, places even further emphasis on the bowl. That emphasis is well-placed, mind you, as it allows for full appreciation of Cavicchi's iconic honey-blonde stain and all of the fine grain that it unveils, this four "C" graded piece displaying flickering flame grain around the walls and through the shank while the top and underside are peppered with birdseye.-John McElheny
