Radice: Rind Billiard with Antler
Product Number: 002-030-3439
Although not a particularly large pipe by Radice standards, this upright Billiard, rusticated in the workshop's famed Rind finish, possesses the average dimensions most commonly appreciated, and in a neoclassical presentation representative of the workshop. The shank-and-stem combination tapers dramatically from the soft transition to the lip button, the shank demurely diminishing and its lines perfectly extended by the stem, which is of black acrylic variegated along its sides with subtle grey swirls, and particularly distinguished from the shank by a contrasting accent of antler. The Rind's rustication climbs the bowl to the smooth rim, that smoothness draping over the edges for visual contrast in profile as well as from an aerial perspective. For traditional shapes recast with Italian design sensibilities, the Radice workshop is an inimitable source.- Chuck Stanion
