Nordstrom, alias L’Arte del Maestro Federici This brand was created by Domenico Federici about 40 years ago in Nettuno near Rome, Italy. The goodness of his dazzling pipe stems, he said, by two factors: the aging of at least 15 years of briar and double boil for 8 months away. Production exclusively hand-made on the example of Carlo Scotti (Castello), Ascorti & Radice (Caminetto) and Giancarlo Guidi (Ser Jacopo). Broad white bar, silver or gold on the mouthpiece the logo of this brand. '''by Piero Eduardo'''
