Ser Jacopo: Leonardo Spongia Rusticated Billiard Delecta with Silver (R2)
Product Number: 002-171-2688
There's an interesting feature hidden within the bowl of this Ser Jacopo Billiard, though it's anything but new. Indeed, this twin-walled pipe design was based on one from Leonardo da Vinci himself, as he was commissioned by King Louis XII of France to fashion a smoker that didn't get hot to the touch. Though the original design was likely intended to be made from terracotta, this rendition was made from briar, finished in a natural-stained iteration of the Spongia rustication, a fitting complement to the intricately decorated sterling silver at the shank.- Daniel Bumgardner
