Castello 1982 'Great Line Collection' # 302


In 1982, Castello set some blocks aside to be aged. Then, in the early '90s, said briar began the shaping process only to be halted  and then set aside once again. Over 30 years later Castello finished the pipes. The 1982's are very limited number with over 35 years total aging of the briar. 

This is a stunning grained Diamond shank Dublin 1982 Great Line Collection. The flare of the bowl is moderate with a clearly defined line. What makes it especially interesting is that the Dublin bowl has a diamond shank with a faux Army mount. This fusion of two classic pipe design elements is rare. Done so well by Castello it is a delight to the eye with a freshness of look. The excellent flame in a golden-blond finish makes it a looker. It is a Great Line Collection. A fusion of beauty and age. Comes if fitted box.
