IMP Meerschaum: Smooth Bent Dublin with Silver (with Case)
Product Number: 002-316-3407
Calling to mind the sinuous form of the traditional gourd Calabash, this IMP bent Dublin is a striking take on the classic shape that's rendered here in pale meerschaum rather than traditional briar. The chamber is impressively deep and the low-set, curling transition provides plenty of room for the thumb to rest against when this lightweight meer isn't hanging comfortably from the jaw. However, one of my favorite aspects about this piece is the use of accenting materials, as a generous amount of sterling silver graces the stem base with the jet-black acrylic stem's subtle mix of swirling orange and green proving to be just as eye catching. And one of the best things about meerschaum is how it will develop a patina with time and use, the stummel reflecting each bowl that's enjoyed and darkening over the years.- Jeffery Sitts
