In 1963 Leonardo's Mona Lisa
was exhibited in the US for the first time, Alfred Hitchcock's The Birds
premiered in theaters, Chuck Yeager narrowly escaped death while testing the NF-104A rocket-augmented aerospace trainer, and this Dunhill straight Billiard was born. Given its marque, much less its vintage, it is, unsurprisingly, a straightforward English classic. Deep-chambered, a sound sitter, an timeless in style and finish, here's hoping someone is still enjoying when another fifty years have passed.
