Alberto Bonfiglioli makes pipes since the 60’s in his workshop in Bologna. Despite his work is not really recognized in Italy, he became very popular in the U.S.A. among a large group of collectors. His pipes are usually inspired by the most classic Italian shapes, like the huge bent Bulldog presented in this page. It is featured by a nice grain all around the bowl; the diamond shank is mounted by a sterling silver band celebrating the 40° Anniversary of activity in 2007.
The pipe has been professionally cleaned. The mouthpiece is the original one and it has been sterilized. Our cleaning process could be considered as ‘conservation intervention’. We save all original stamps, marks and logos on the mouthpiece. The stain of the pipe is the original one and it is not modified at all. The chamber is cleaned from the carbon cake of the previous smoker. We apply a very light layer of vegetal carbon.
