Savinelli: 145th Anniversary Giubileo D'Oro Smooth Natural (5/145) (6mm)
Product Number: 002-033-57134
1876 was a year of breakthroughs: Thomas Edison patented the mimeograph, Alexander Graham Bell made the first telephone call, Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky completed Swan Lake, Mark Twain published Tom Sawyer, and in Milan, Italy, Achille Savinelli opened one of the first shops exclusively focused on tobacco and smoking accessories. Today, 145 years after Achille opened his first shop, Savinelli pipes are among the most popular smoking instruments in the world, prized for their unique Italian flair, tasteful finishes, and quality craftsmanship. To celebrate such a phenomenal achievement, the marque released a two-part project to commemorate their 145th anniversary in 2021: a unique Virginia/Perique pipe tobacco and a special, commemorative pipe shape. Savinelli's 145th Anniversary pipe pays tribute to the marque's storied legacy with a classic, elegant bent Apple shape, reminiscent of the marque's popular "626" design, marked by a plump, rounded bowl and gentle bend. Accented by a broad sterling silver band bearing Savinelli's iconic logo, this 145th Anniversary pipe is serialized out of a total 145 crafted pipes and wears the light, chestnut finish of the top-tier Giubileo d'Oro line.
The highest tier within Savinelli's standard lineup, the Giubileo d'Oro series presents the Italian marque's superlative pieces. Meaning "Golden Jubilee" in Italian, the Giubileo d'Oro series denotes Savinelli pipes par excellence, and the strict standards determining Giubileo d'Oro pieces mean that only 0.1% of Savinelli's total production is found worthy of the line's iconic three brass dot stem logo. As such, these pipes showcase choice grain patterns and exquisite finishes — from concisely defined sandblasts to gorgeously arrayed flame grain and birdseye. This particular example wears the line's smooth, Natural stain, highlighting the briar's natural grain in a traditional and vivid palette, and comes complete with a matching tamper.- Andrew Wike
