Project description

The “Gandalf fossil edition” is the most rare edition of the Gandalf Pipe, a churchwarden entirely made of bog oak.

The ancient wood out of which the bowl and the stem are made dates back to trees lived more than 2800 years ago.
The growth rings are visible on the bowl, telling the story of the tree, which has been buried in the subsoil for hundreds of years. Its spirit revives today within this precious object.

The tip of the stem is made of precious German cumberland, whose color is similar to that of the wood.

On the back of the pipe are two mother-of-pearl dots, which embellish the pipe and guide the correct alignment of the stem.

The pipe is placed in a box, hand-made in all its details; made of abura walnut, with a precious curly maple sliding lid.
