Radice: Rind Paneled Billiard (E) (GG)
Product Number: 002-030-4091
Bearing two "G" stamps, denoting the pipe's robust size, this Italian neoclassical Billiard from Radice features eight crisp facets that encompass the bowl. The paneled sides lend the bowl an octagonal shape when viewed from above and provide the design with plenty of firm, architectural lines that further accentuate the shape's muscular aesthetic. The bowl dominates most of the composition's profile, overshadowing the relatively trim proportions of the low-set shank-and-stem combination. The abbreviated shank tapers gradually along its length before giving way to brindled vulcanite mouthpiece of gray and pale yellow hues. The stummel wears a warm, burnt-orange rustication that provides plenty of craggy texture for a unique in-hand presence, with the broad rim left smooth for a touch of contrast. This piece is able to sit sturdily without the aid of a stand, making it ideal for busy multitaskers.--Davin Hylton
