This may not be the most valuable Ser Jacopo pipe we have ever showcased, but its allure lies in its convenient and comfortable shape, masterful rustication, and, of course, the prestigious name it bears. Judging by the dotted logo on the mouthpiece, it belongs to the period between 1983 and 1997, an “early” Ser Jacopo meticulously carved by the skilled hands of Giancarlo Guidi in Pesaro, Italy, shortly after parting ways with Mastro de Paja. The pipe remains in a personal collection.
