Italian Estates: Caminetto Sandblasted Pot (65/7/2/01)

Product Number: 004-155-0979

Caminetto is very much a family brand, now with three generations of Ascortis all sharing their craft under this name. Giuseppe Ascorti, or "Peppino" to his friends, was one of the original founders of the marque and played a large role in the brand's early success. Ascorti later left Caminetto to continue his craft, but the "Pipa Del Baffo" ("the pipe with the mustache") still held a special place in the hearts of the Ascorti family. This legacy is what led Peppino's son, Roberto, to revive the old Caminetto name we know and love today.

Caminetto pipes are currently made by Roberto and his son Tommaso or "Tommi" Ascorti. The workshop continues to feature many of the shapes which contributed to their spectacular success in the '70s, but recently there has also been something of a shaping/aesthetic revolution afoot. With Roberto and Tommi at the helm, Caminettos now can bear either of two stamps: "AR" (Ascorti, Roberto) or "AT" (Ascorti, Tommaso). The AR line can present the work of either Roberto or Tommaso, and continues to create a fine combination of the Caminetto traditional shapes, as well as many of the new emerging forms. The AT line is Tommi's alone, and features edge-pushing designs which, heretofore, would have been considered quite unexpected from Caminetto.
