Ser Jacopo: Smooth Paneled Bent Dublin (L1) (A) (Maxima) Tobacco Pipe

Product Number: 002-171-4343

Founded in 1982 by Giancarlo Guidi, Ser Jacopo has built a reputation on crafting high-quality briars that are renowned for their robust proportions and playful shaping cues. The Italian atelier's style has since defined the Pesaro style of pipe making, each of their pipes imbued with a sense of character and reflecting the whimsical creativity that went into crafting them. Though Guidi passed away in 2012, his legacy lives on not only in the pipes he crafted, or the company he founded, but in the language of design that he helped to pioneer. This paneled bent Dublin is part of the workshop's Maxima series, the line denoting pipes that are larger than normal from the Pesaro carvers, where each stamp represents a subsequent increase in size. This particular piece is stamped once with the designation, and it earns that stamping well, with an impressive length and substance in hand. The saddle stem here is subtly curved and paneled at the flanks, leading to a stretch of square shank that angles downward and flares into the transition and heel with flat surfaces, creating ridgelines on the left and right flanks. The apex of the heel is set reasonably far forward, aligned closer to the fore portion of the rim than the middle of the chamber, and sweeps dramatically upward. At the heel also begins a set of four more panels at the corners of the rectangular profile which lead to the arched rim, giving it the shape of an oblong octagonal dome. The sinuous silhouette of this pipe is nothing short of alluring, the outline possessed of a decided momentum: its gradual descent and sharp upturn imbuing it with a striking dramatic flair. Dressed in a warm, richly-stained smooth finish, the stummel showcases a wealth of handsome grain throughout.
