Ser Jacopo: Smooth Billiard with Silver (L) (A) Tobacco Pipe

Product Number: 002-171-4347

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. While we usually expect to see playful, dramatically stylized shapes from Ser Jacopo, the Pesaro workshop has here presented us with a far more classically-oriented piece in the form of this straight Bing's Favorite-style Billiard. That all being said, this pipe is strikingly long, coming in at nearly seven inches in length thanks to the shank and stem's exaggerated proportions. This combination additionally contributes to an aerodynamic sleekness through the aft side, as they take on a consistent taper from the transition to the button, balancing out the visual weight of the bowl quite well. Said bowl rests on a rounded heel and rises over two inches to the rim, taking on its own gentle taper as it reaches upward: working well with the taper of the shank and stem for an overall look that is alluringly gracile. Dressing the briar here is a deep, inky stain that showcases subtle grain in wispy fashion, its dark tones contrasted strikingly by a band of silver at the junction.
