This is a Granato (Garnet) Maxima Delecta with the mount
being made of cultured amber. It's extremely difficult to see
the fine bullcap ring scored at the top of the bowl. In fact the
as close to the top as any pipe we've ever seem. It's about a
sixteenth of an inch off the top, and gives the pipe the look
there is an insert inside the bowl.
This is a spectacular pipe. Large yet light, and beautifully balanced,
with a "ton" of straight grain all meeting up nicely
the bottom of the bowl. A great Delecta piece.
