Erik Stokkebye 4th Generation: Argang Vintage Natural (2012) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-787-1425
Named after Erik Stokkebye 4th Generation's 2012 Anniversary Blend, this bent Dublin fits in well to the Danish marque's other designs which are likewise named after the brand's celebrated tobacco blends. Those mixtures draw their names from significant dates within the family company's generational history, and 2012 is the year Erik Stokkebye 4th Generation was founded. Shape-wise, this piece features a bold, subtly flaring bowl contrasted against the comparatively more slender and gestural shank-and-stem combination, exhibiting a tasteful combination of muscularity and fluid elegance.
One of the most vivid finishes across Erik Stokkebye 4th Generation's lineup, the Vintage Natural features pipes dressed in a smooth texture and vibrant contrast stain that combines rich gold and auburn hues. Such a presentation exemplifies Peder Jeppesen's renowned aesthetic — the Danish carver behind Neerup pipes who also crafts a number of 4th Generation's lines — and his work often presents bold color palettes, as indicated by this piece's combination of finish, multi-hued acrylic stem, and flashy metal accent.-Truett Smith
