In the annals of Smokingpipes.com, this is only the second Old Antiquari Rhodesian to make an appearance and, to be completely candid, I am not all that sure that we are seeing one now. OK, that was unfair. Castello often will move well away its standard shape chart, and why would the 54 Rhodesian be any different? Shape pedantry aside, the grain of this bowl is right decent, and it's hard to take a pass on a Castello that features a military mount and stem.
