Musico: Sandblasted Bent Billiard with Boxwood (Floodlight) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-008-0712
A trim and streamlined take on the bent Billiard from Musico, this piece showcases the Italian workshop's ability to render timeless shapes in classic proportions. The stem here is a sleek vulcanite taper that pushes into a boxwood mount at the shank end, allowing this pipe to be taken apart at any time, even when hot, that effectively extends the reach of the rather trim shank. Additionally, this mount is flared toward its end, adding a touch of sharpness to the outline that draws a bit of the visual weight away from the bowl. The bowl here is solid and softly tapered to the rim, with gentle curves across its surfaces, itself a wonderful canvas to showcase the inky black sandblast of the stummel, the pale hues of the boxwood contrasting wonderfully.-John McElheny
