Ser Jacopo: Picta Van Gogh Spongia Rusticated Bent Billiard with Silver (R2) (C) (1) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-171-3951
Ser Jacopo was founded in the 1980s by legendary pipe maker Giancarlo Guidi. The workshop cultivated their signature Pesaro style, which delights in dramatic flourishes and whimsical stylings, even more so than the already playful Italian tradition. Unfortunately, Guidi passed away in 2012, but Ser Jacopo carries on his legacy. One of Guidi's greatest passions, other than pipe making, was procuring fine art. Ser Jacopo's Picta series pays homage to iconic art pieces, and this particular pipe was inspired by Vincent van Gogh's painting Self-Portrait with Bandaged Ear and Pipe.
This bent Billiard by Ser Jacopo features an hourglass shaped bowl, which displays a beadline dressed in a smooth finish just below the broad rim that, offering textural contrast to the rugged Spongia rustication that covers the stummel in a blonde stain. Out back, the acrylic saddle stem is exceptionally bent, curving far past parallel with the rim. Said stem joins to the thick shank at a glimmering silver expansion ring, which mediates the transition between the warm colors on the stummel and the jet-black acrylic.--Zach Podl
