Savinelli: Bing's Favorite Limited Edition Arlecchino (6mm) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-033-64457
The Favorites line from Savinelli presents long-stemmed designs inspired by those smoked by Clark Gable, Bing Crosby, and Ginger Rogers. Bing's Favorite is presented here — a take on the long-shanked, long-stemmed Billiards the celebrity was often seen smoking. Such a rendition has since become known as "Bing's Billiard," and Savinelli's version here stays true to its characteristic design cues, while adding a slight bend to the stem for more comfortable clenching.
This particular example is one of four limited-edition versions, showcasing Savinelli's reputation for proprietary stems of high-quality acrylic — with only 125 pipes made in each color option. The Italian marque custom-sources mouthpieces for their thematic series, and the special acrylic reveals innovative colors and myriad patterns not found outside the Italian marque's production. Typically, the Bing's Favorite is fitted to a traditional, jet-black stem, but this limited-edition example features the technicolor, mosaic-patterned mouthpiece of Savinelli's Arlecchino series. To emphasize the colorful array and showcase the acrylic's complexity, this piece is finished in a dark rustication and accented by a trim nickel ring, resulting in a sophisticated rendition that merges the popular shape's traditional design with a modern color palette.-Truett Smith
