Savinelli: Arlecchino Rusticated Black (111 KS) (6mm)
Product Number: 002-163-2212
A lively and playful series, Savinelli's Arlecchino line is a tip of the hat to the comedic characters known for their physical agility and nimble, acrobatic stunts in commedia dell'arte, an early form of theatre popular in Italy starting around the 16th century. Unlike other characters in a play, the Arlecchino rarely contributed to the development of the plot but nonetheless was instrumental in the pacing of the performance, entertaining the audience during slower moments and changing scenery by hitting it with their "slap stick". This mischievous series is defined by a singular shape, the "111 KS" Billiard, and limited to only 1,000 total pipes. Each piece is finished in either a smooth, natural stain or a dark rustication, both paired to a technicolor mouthpiece of mosaic patterning that calls to mind the colourful, checkered costume worn by the traditional Arlecchino.
