Ser Jacopo: Historica 2021 Picta Van Gogh Rowlette Rusticated Bent Billiard with Silver (1) (22)
Product Number: 002-171-3088
Founded by Giancarlo Guidi in 1982, Ser Jacopo boasts a rich history of nearly 40 years, enjoying a well-deserved reputation of being on the cutting edge of the Pesaro style of pipe making. The Historica line was conceived as a means of revisiting some of their more distinctive shapes and contemporizing them, often with ornate silverwork, as seen in this Picta bent Billiard. The workshop's Picta line depicts the works of famous artists, showcasing pipes similar to those seen in paintings. This pipe, based upon Van Gogh's 1889 painting Self-Portrait with Bandaged Ear and Pipe, presents a tall, hearty bowl that's dressed in the texturally diverse Rowlette "dripping wax" rustication. While the motif is a common one in Italian pipe making, Ser Jacopo's design is deftly detailed and crafted. Featuring a cap-like rim with a demarcating, asymmetrical ridgeline beneath, the inner rim is lightly stained and "drips" down. The curling, abbreviated shank is adorned with a bright, distinctive band of silver, while an elongated stem of contrasting black and white adds a whimsical disposition.-Angela Robertson
