Rinaldo: Lithos Bent Egg (YY) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-031-0771
A uniquely shaped bent Egg from Rinaldo, this piece presents with a good deal of palpable forward momentum, this owed mainly to the sweeping fore of the bowl which works in tandem with a gentle forward lean to give the impression of a shape that's rushing onward. The aft wall of the bowl is taken in a good bit and not curved quite as much as the fore, furthering this speeding look and creating a transition wide enough for easy thumb draping. From out of this transition ebbs a trim shank which has been sharply upturned and pinched at the midsection, flaring out toward the end and forming a smooth, domed face. A sunny yellow stem arcs gracefully out of this face, its base rounded by an expansion ring to offer a bit of negative space at the junction, pulling some of the visual weight away from the bowl. Dressing the stummel here is the dark, craggy rustication of the Lithos series, offering a rugged look with a wealth of contrast.-John McElheny
