English Estates: Barling's Make Ye Olde Wood Smooth Billiard (EL) (T.V.F.) (Pre-Transition) (Replacement Stem)
Product Number: 004-002-7417
Not just a pre-transition Barling, but a choice one at that, this Ye Olde Wood straight Billiard sports an impressive transverse grain; birdseye up front and along the back of the bowl, and bands of flame down the flanks. Well, that's normally where one of these grain patterns stops, anyway. In this case the grain took just the right curve, however, so that more birdseye appears atop and underneath the shank, with more flame grain sweeping down its flanks as well.
