Winslow: Crown Partially Rusticated Billiard (Viking)
Product Number: 002-036-0658
A very classically oriented, Italian-proportioned Billiard, beautiful in every sense of the word, from its creased, fabric-like grain to its cool auburn stain...but scarred. Okay, at first I have to admit, initially the pipe looked to me as if it had been lashed for being naughty, but the more time I spent with it, the more I liked the aesthetic. Something about contrasting the beautifully serene surface with a more brutal scrapes just seems to work. The unique rustication also feels wonderful in hand, while you ponder an object who at one time was probably as tame as a Thomas Kinkade landscape painting, now washed over with a dark complexity.
