This well cut straight Billiard sports flame grain around the entire bowl and birds-eye atop a wide rim. The "106" Billiard shape is a solid Billiard design in which Peterson's design nuances really accentuate the classic shape. A broad and deep chamber is coupled with ample briar in the bowl walls; and the shank, while robust, seems to be perfectly proportional to the bowl. It is presented here in the new Fermoy series, a darkly handsome, understated piece, stained in a rich, dark raw umber, smoothly finished, and paired with a band of nickel.
