English Estates: Ashton Sovereign Billiard (XXX) (9mm) (1995)
Product Number: 004-002-7155
Bill Ashton-Taylor wasn't as shy as Dunhill about producing English pipes designed to fit the rather Continental 9mm filter, and while they aren't tremendously common, we've still come across quite few examples - this Sovereign straight Billiard being one. As luck would have it, the adapter, complete with a chamfered face on the briar-end, is still with the pipe, so that's also taken care of in case you don't favor a filtered smoke. Overall this pipe is in surprisingly fine condition for something nearly twenty years old, and I must say the pattern and color of the cumberland of the stem is particularly lovely.
