Ser Jacopo: Spongia Sandblasted Bent Billiard with Silver (S3) (A) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-171-3552
Certainly a full-bodied bent Billiard, this piece from Ser Jacopo showcases a kind of languid fluidity about its person, with a gently curved stem ebbing into a silver dome. At this dome, we see a bit of a taper from the bit to the base, the base itself looking quite soft as it nestles into the shank end fitment. From here we see the trim shank begin, possessed of a somewhat sharp upward angle that poises the stem for comfortable smoking, as well as offering a handsome stature. This shank expands into the transition with a very subtle kind of cheeking, building to a Brandy-esque bowl with a low-set, slightly plump waistline that starts a lengthy, gradual taper to the rim. A warm tanblast dresses the briar here, revealing some handsome growth rings rippling across the stummel, while the stem and silver fitment provide a lovely contrast.-John McElheny
