Rinaldo: Sahara Bent Egg (YYY) (Titania) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-031-0755
This bent Egg is a unique interpretation of the classic form, featuring a forward-canted bowl that rises at the fore of a sinuous shank-and-stem arrangement. In typical Italian neoclassical fashion, the bowl here holds most of the visual weight within the composition, its active posture and muscular build overshadowing the slender oval shank and demure tapered mouthpiece. The rugged Sahara sandblast dresses the stummel and coaxes out subtle waves of growth rings about that flanks of the bowl. Hearty and quite gestural, this piece is a fine example of Italian pipe making, and it will no doubt become a favorite member of any collector's rotation.--Davin Hylton
