Erik Stokkebye 4th Generation: Argang Vintage Natural (1897) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-787-1482
This muscular, broad-bowled bent Pot from 4th Generation corresponds to Erik Stokkebye's 1897 blend, which honors the birthdate of Erik Stokkebye's grandfather, Erik Paul, the second generation of the Stokkebye family's long standing tobacco tradition. As a pipe, the "1897" was designed for Erik Stokkebye 4th Generation by Peder Jeppesen of Neerup, and it's a design that beautifully reflects Peder's recognizable shaping aesthetic: The bowl is thick-walled and full-bodied, contrasted by the comparatively slender shank-and-stem combination's elegant curvature. Such shaping combines for a pipe that fits substantially in hand, with a wide presence for wrapped fingers, that also hangs comfortably hands-free.
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
