No two Autographs are ever alike. From the inherent variations of handmade craftsmanship, to the purposeful attempts at making designs that are unique, be it subtly or boldly. For this paneled Billiard the congruency of the panels work naturally into the shank design. The two side panels of the eight-panel bowl design taper off while each other panel moves seamlessly into the broad, sturdy oval design of the shank. It's really a truly well thought-out and executed design. As the Autographs always are, the entire piece is a robust handful of a pipe. The piece was graded a '3' and shows the artisan's intent on producing a quality straight grain pattern, exposing flame grain around the panels, and birdseye atop the rim.
