Barontini 500, Matt Bent Apple Estate Briar Tobacco Pipe, Italian Estates [SOLD OUT]
Out of stock
While not as well known as other Italian pipe brands, Barontini is one of the oldest in the country. Founded in 1890 in Tuscany by Turildo Barontini, the company initially only produced briar, but in 1925, Turildo’s son Bruno shifted the operation to making pipes from this briar. Later, the company was inherited by Cesare Barontini, whose name is most readily associated with Barontini pipe production. Barontini is still operated by Cesare and his wife today.
This Barontini appears to be a fairly old production model, judging by the logo, the nomenclature, and the (original) box it comes with. It’s a fine looking pipe – an English style bent billiard, or perhaps a slightly softened Oom Paul shape. It doesn’t appear to have been smoked much by its previous owner, either.
