Savinelli: Venere Smooth (207) (6mm)
Product Number: 002-033-44579
Savinelli's "207" Apple is one of their more traditionally inclined and noticeably English-inspired designs, defined by its broad, plump bowl and an arrow straight shank-and-stem arrangement. It's also one of the few straight Apple shapes offered by the Italian marque, the other primarily being their "202." Where the two versions differ is in their proportions: The "207" tends to be a touch shorter in length but features a larger bowl while the "202" is slightly longer and trimmer, displaying a smaller bowl up front.
The inspiration for Savinelli's Venere series comes from Sandro Botticelli's 15th century painting, The Birth of Venus. The painting, currently featured in the Uffizi Gallery in Florence, is perhaps the most recognizable depiction of the Roman goddess ever created. With long, blonde hair enveloping a voluptuous figure and skin as fair as sea foam, the representation follows the ancient Greek motif of Aphrodite's origins. In accordance with its Italian heritage, Savinelli pays homage to the Florentine painter and his magnum opus with the Venere line, featuring pipes finished in either a dusky, auburn rustication or, in this case, a honey-blonde stain that illuminates the briar's natural grain with a bright brass band accenting the stem base.- Jeffery Sitts
