Ser Jacopo: Picta Magritte Spongia Rusticated Bent Billiard with Silver (R2) (C) (10) (9mm) Tobacco Pipe

Product Number: 002-171-4306

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. Sadly, Guidi passed away in 2012, but his workshop 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 Belgian surrealist René Magritte's famous painting The Treachery of Images (1929), which is better known colloquially as "This Is Not a Pipe."

This bent Billiard by Ser Jacopo possesses a lean, towering bowl, its walls neatly tapering from the plump waist to the taut rim. Out back, the sweeping shank-and-stem arrangement sinuously bends upward to the wide bit, making this piece a comfortable jaw-hanger. Furthermore, the stummel is dressed in a rugged, honey-blonde-stained rustication, save for the nomenclature panels, which showcase a smooth finish. Additionally, the composition is elevated by a shining silver band that features a detailed carving depicting Magritte's iconic flying doves.
