Danish Estates: Tao Smooth Billiard with Silver

Product Number: 004-001-18648

This Billiard is one of Jens "Tao" Nielsen's sleeker pieces, though it maintains the generous chamber and stocky bowl proportions we've come to expect from the legendary carver. A plump, slightly tapered Billiard, the bowl is particularly tall against its trim shank, offering a rather lofty sensibility. The finish, too, is of note — while we've seen Tao use contrast stains in the past, this red-hued one has deftly highlighted the briar's gorgeous grain, a splendid display of flame that further echoes the soft, supple taper of the bowl itself. It's been contrasted with the darker, but still warm tones of a cumberland mouthpiece, the two elements divided only by a generous band of sterling silver — a simple accent that is as refined as they come.
