English Estates: Pipe Pub Brigade Smooth Billiard
Product Number: 004-002-7175
If I had to guess (and a guess is all I indeed have), I'd wager this "Brigade" was made for Bewlay's Pipe Pub, one of the oldest tobacconists in Hull, and evidently the only local pub that doesn't serve alcohol - just pipes and tobacco. While there are several flaws evident, the grain and its arrangement are otherwise pretty impressive, with loads of birdseye to either side and a band of flame neatly down the center.
