Savinelli Autograph: Autograph Mignon Smooth Bent Billiard
Product Number: 002-790-0568
The Mignon line of Autographs from Savinelli represent smaller-sized pipes than is typical for Autographs, which tend to lean more toward large Freehand shapes. What's particularly intriguing is the subtlety with which a Savinelli artisan has created this small Billiard. The shank and bowl angle is a bit higher than perpendicular, but not as much as one would expect in a bent Billiard. The shank is relatively diminutive, throwing visual weight forward to the bowl, as is often the case with Italian designs, with the heel more pronounced and forward. The light, honey stain signals the pristine nature of the briar, as light stains reveal every flaw, and this piece appears to have none. Extraordinarily light, with delightful flame and birdseye grain contrasted by the black stem with the Achille Savinelli signature emblazoned on it, this is close to a pocket pipe for those who love the Autograph aesthetic but shy away from the usually very large Autograph pipes.- Chuck Stanion
