Ser Jacopo: Picta Magritte Smooth Bent Dublin with Silver (L1) (C) (16) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-171-3736
Ser Jacopo's founder, the late Giancarlo Guidi was an avid art collector and enthusiast, so much so that he created the Picta line — a series inspired by pipes featured in the works of major artists like van Gogh, Miro, and Magritte. For inspiration for these designs, he looked to his various monographs, which often feature images of the unfinished or otherwise more obscure work of one artist or another, as well as their famous pieces. One of those lesser-known works was the inspiration for this rather whimsical bent Dublin shape, sourced from a Magritte painting entitled The Pipes Enamored at the Moon from 1928. Displaying a tall, robust bowl with a wavy rim, this piece is lent further flourish by the aquiline curve of shank and sharply downturned stem of the Hawkbill design, for a hybrid of sorts. It's wearing a rich, auburn contrast stain, revealing dense, fiery licks of flame grain on all flanks, while stunning birdseye whorls saturate the rim. Furthermore, an ornate accent band depicting the Belgian artist's iconic flying doves offers additional elegance.- Angela Robertson
