Peterson: Adventures of Sherlock Holmes Sandblasted Sylvius Fishtail

Product Number: 002-029-21495

This classic, though rather lofty straight Billiard takes its name from Count Negretto Sylvius, the rather aptly-named villain of The Adventure of the Mazarin Stone. Negretto being derived from the Latin for "black", and Sylvius that for "wood", the name is an obvious allusion to the murky forests of so many fables - and fitting to a character whom Sherlock spends much of the story waiting for through the night, in expectation that the nobleman-turned-diamond-thief will come to try and assassinate him. It is presented here in a dark black-and-red sandblast, accented with a band of bright sterling silver.
