Ser Jacopo: Leonardo Delecta Spongia Rusticated Bent Billiard with Silver (R2) (E) (9mm) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-171-4240
Since its founding in 1982, Ser Jacopo has become one of the most recognizable and iconic pipe brands in all of Italy. Under the watchful stewardship of founder Giancarlo Guidi, the workshop developed a style that has since come to define the Pesaro shaping aesthetic. Each Ser Jacopo pipe is imbued with a whimsical sense of character that reflects the brand's creativity and playful spirit. This bent Billiard by Ser Jacopo takes inspiration from Leonardo da Vinci, who, at the request of King Louis XII of France, designed a pipe that would not get hot to the touch, producing a twin-walled piece that had a metal inlay surrounding the tobacco chamber, with occasional punctures in its top to allow hot air to escape. Here, Ser Jacopo has created a design inspired by what da Vinci crafted hundred of years ago, stealing from the very best, but still making a design that's distinctly their own. Shape-wise, it's a rather robust take on the bent Billiard shape, one offering a wealth of substance for the fingers to embrace,. It's dressed in the craggy Spongia rustication and accented with flashy bands of sterling silver.--Davin Hylton
