Claudio Cavicchi: Brown Smooth Bent Apple (Perla) Tobacco Pipe

Product Number: 002-400-3008

Cavicchi's Perla designation is the Italian carver's second highest grade, proceeded only by the extremely rare Diamante grade. Cavicchi takes pain-staking efforts to ensure all of his pipes meet his exacting standards, and being something of a perfectionist, he rarely distributes pipes with a Perla or Dimanate grade, making this bent Apple a rare treat and something of an anomaly within the Italian artisan's portfolio. It's certainly a gorgeous design, and one that's exceptionally supple even given its robust build and Italian neoclassical proportions. It features a tall, hearty bowl that stands at the fore of an sweeping shank and a demurely curved saddle stem. The shank-and-stem arrangement provides a healthy bit of gesture to the shape's profile, while the bowl houses a respectably deep chamber within its contoured insulating walls. The vibrant Brown smooth finish dresses the stummel and highlights tight-knit strands of flame grain that rises across the bowl's flanks to a rim populated with birdseye. A stunning shape all around, this piece will surely become a cherished part of any pipe smoker's collection.
