INTRODUCING LORENZO PIPES TO CIGARWORLD AUSTRALIA -
LORENZO PIPES OF ITALY
ABOUT LORENZO PIPES - It has been said that Italy is a country where art is a way of life. For more than a century, Lorenzo has been making pipes from the best Mediterranean briars renowned for its beauty of grain and remarkably good smoking qualities. Lorenzo di Donato continues the heritage of creating new briar models and finishes today. Those who appreciate a quality Italian briar that give years of smoking pleasure, yet is reasonable priced, will find a Lorenzo pipe an excellent choice. The newly issued Lorenzos mostly showed extremely strong forms in designs appealing greatly and massively. Thick, beefy walls of the bowls and broad and strong stems were significant for them.
As contemporary ads said, these pipes were "Made for real men with strong hands". Many had a flattened bottom to sit on the table. Next to the unusual shapes, the patina effect of the silk mat surface combined with a bold red or a bright orange staining gave the pipes their distinctive look.
