Danish Estates: Stanwell Smooth Dress Billiard with Silver (Regd. No.) (1979)
Product Number: 004-001-14580
This Stanwell Billiard is somewhat of an enigma, specifically regarding the date it was made. It features a regulation number, which ended in the late 60s; however, the sterling silver band is engraved with 1979. It's most likely that the stummel was fashioned earlier but saved until the later date before being completely finished and dressed with the silver accent, but we can't be entirely sure. Regardless, it's a beautiful Danish classic, well made, and showing a dark, smoky stain to really make for a classy disposition. Condition is fair, as it shows some rim charring, a worn finish from buffing, and carbonizing in the chamber that's uneven from reaming, but for such a unique, vintage piece, those issues are relatively minor.-Truett Smith
