Ser Jacopo: Sandblasted Bent Billiard with Silver (S2) (B) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-171-3616
Presenting with a near nosewarmer length of just over four and a half inches, this bent Billiard from Ser Jacopo is an extremely compact bit of Italian craftsmanship. That being said, it is additionally quite stout, with a thorough chubbiness possessing the entire composition, tempered by a sense of tightly-knit muscularity resulting in an utterly charming look overall. The stem here is a demure arc of black tapered acrylic, diminishing swiftly in girth at the base where it's then adorned with a broad band of silver. This base nestles into the wide mortise area, creating a seamless, though obviously visually separated, look, especially given the shank end's domed silver cap. The shank itself is quite thick and strikingly trim, upturned elegantly to lend this pipe an elegant posture and the stem a comfortable smoking stature. A sweeping, rounded heel leads to a rather tall bowl, rising to over two inches in height with thick, insulating walls that hold a capacious chamber, its surfaces dressed in a crisp auburn sandblast that unveils some densely packed, rippling ring grain cascading down from the rim.-John McElheny
