IMP Meerschaum: Partially Rusticated Reverse Calabash Calabash with Silver (with Case) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-316-4222
A bold, stocky rendition of the Calabash shape, this piece from IMP boasts the form's characteristic domed rim that hangs over the downward tapering bowl. The shank flares out of the low-set transition and houses a reverse Calabash chamber that is designed to collect excess moisture and ensure a cooler, drier smoking experience. The emerald-hued saddle stem of acrylic plugs into the face of the shank and leads into a band of sterling silver, an accoutrement that provides a dose of flash to the overall composition. The pale meerschaum stummel wears a rustication across the bowl and shank, offering a subtle texture for the fingers to explore, while the rim is left smooth for a touch of contrast. With time and use, this piece will accrue patina, taking on tans, browns, and golds.--Davin Hylton
