Argang Vintage Natural (1855)
This 4th Generation bent Brandy is named for Erik Stokkebye's 1855 blend — a rather traditional, pure Virginia mixture corresponding to his great-grandfather's year of birth. Many of Stokkebye's blends and pipe shapes honor significant dates in the familial company's rich history, and like the tobacco blend itself, this shape is smooth, natural, and approachable, crafted by Peder Jeppesen of Neerup and exhibiting a soft-lined, plump aesthetic in a compact, Nosewarmer form.
One of the most vivid finishes across Erik Stokkebye 4th Generation's lineup, the Vintage Natural features pipes dressed in a smooth texture and vibrant contrast stain that combines rich gold and auburn hues. Such a presentation exemplifies Peder Jeppesen's renowned aesthetic — the Danish carver behind Neerup pipes who also crafts a number of 4th Generation's lines — and his work often presents bold color palettes, as indicated by this piece's combination of finish, multi-hued acrylic stem, and flashy metal accent.
