Nanna Ivarsson: Smooth Acorn (2220) Tobacco Pipe

Product Number: 002-361-0116

Ivarsson pipes, whether having been made by Sixten, Lars, or Nanna, have a great strength of personality in their silhouettes alone. Note the perfection of the curves here in this Acorn from Nanna, with the bulbous bowl rising organically from the tight transition and expanding to the rounded rim, which is punctuated by the most subtle aspects of plateau. The rim and bowl are oval along the axis of the shank, and maintain the organic curvature of the profile but in reduced dimensions. The long, expanding shank that is so prevalent in Ivarsson designs, from both Lars and Nanna, is here abundantly on display as it flares gently to the elegant ring of boxwood before introducing the dome stem base a short, saddle configuration of the mouthpiece.

The grain is highlighted by a finish of impressive smoothness and precision, and surrounds the bowl with flame grain that follows the curvature of the bowl, while also angling up the sides of the shank. At over six inches, this is a piece that provides a nice length of smoking instrument in a form that is of obvious superior quality, particularly notable in person. Few pipes anywhere can boast the precise line work and artistic balance of this rare pipe.
