Ser Jacopo: Rowlette Rusticated Billiard (A) (Maxima) (9mm) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-171-3873
Part of the Italian workshop's extra large Maxima line, this straight Billiard from Ser Jacopo showcases their Pesaro style quite well, with a playful outline that does very well to enhance the presence of the bowl. While we've seen Billiards from Ser Jacopo before, this style is one quite uncommon for their carvers, as it does away with the Billiard's standard heel and underside, instead extending it further down with a bulbous curve, giving the bowl further presence and extending its supple curvature. From this large heel we see the walls take on a slow taper to the broad rim, rising to nearly two and a half inches tall and holding a capacious chamber within its thick walls. The shank and stem here are long, extending the reach of this piece to over seven inches, but are slender and take on a consistent taper from the wide transition to the button which places even more emphasis on the bowl. Dressed in the iconic "dripping wax" rustication of the Rowlette series, this piece is rich with texture and visual intrigue.-John McElheny
