This pipe was delivered earlier than I expected. I am very satisfied with the feel of this pipe in the hand and the way it feels on the lips when smoked. The mixture of red, orange, yellow, and a hint of purple are French Impressionism alive in glass. I am reminded fondly of the painting San Giorgio Maggiore at Dusk by Monet when I look at it. I would repurchase this pipe again. Thank you Beezy Glass for a fine work of art.
