Danish Estates: Tom Eltang Sandblasted Billiard with Brass Band (Unsmoked)
Product Number: 004-001-5216
If the rim, precise, high-rimmed proportions of this Tom Eltang Billiard reminds you of the style of the Danish master Sixten Ivarsson, or the hexagonal, brass-banded shank calls to mind Stanwell's "Sixtus" series, well, that's perfectly understandable. Tom Eltang, after all, was the designer of the Sixtus-series shapes (or one of the designers, at least), which were indeed dedicated to the legacy of Sixten Ivarsson. Tom's own personal execution of this theme, as expected, is exquisite, presenting flawless fit and finish, perfect shaping, a crisp sandblast, and fine, teasing little flash of ring grain about the slim, polished rim.
