A Ser Jacopo Garnet (Granato) with 18k gold band.
This shape - Hawkbill - is a new one for Ser Jacopo, but has
certainly been around for a while.
It's seen from time to time as the Castello 84, but is not
one of their most frequently made shapes.
At a Chicago Pipe Collectors show we noted considerable interest
this shape and we thought it would look good as a Ser Jacopo.
And it does!
We don't receive many Hawkbills, and this is the first in a Gem
