IMP Meerschaum: Smooth Calabash with Silver (with Case)
Product Number: 002-316-3937
With its domed, overhanging mushroom-like rim, this IMP offering is a fascinating take on the classic Calabash that hearkens back to the traditional ones of yesteryear that were fashioned from gourd and topped with a removable meerschaum cap. The primary difference between this IMP rendition and the classic gourd ones (other than this one opting for a non-removable cap), is that this example displays a much more subtle silhouette as compared to the sinuously bent gourd pieces. Here, the Turkish marque has simply opted for a softly downturned saddle stem that throws much of the visual focus toward the curling line work and the poised bowl up front. The acrylic stem's mix of smoky grey and black tones is then accented by a sterling silver mount.- Jeffery Sitts
