Details

Pushing the Neo-Danish style forward into a purely American aesthetic, Thomas James' work has been sought after by collectors all over the world.  And while he isn't making pipes these days, there is little doubt that his craftsmanship and artistry are still appreciated in these gems that rarely make it out to the estate market.  In phenomenally good condition, this tall and deep chambered pear features a contrast sandblast finish that is so well done, it quite literally changes tone depending on how the light bounces off.  Sometimes red or orange, or some subtle tone only seen in a sunset, the shank is pinched at the transition, being both sinewy and strong, for a balance point between the flare of the shank, and the large, comfortable, bulbous bulk of the bowl.  The mortise is reinforced with a copper ring and the military mount stem carries a simple flared disk to balance the single bead at the end of the shank and the lines of this tremendous smoker.  This estate pipe does not include the original sleeve but has a sweet spot sized, deep chamber that can keep any good blend in a satisfying smoke for hours at a time.
