English Estates: James Upshall Smooth Billiard (A) (Unsmoked)
Product Number: 004-002-17874
This James Upshall take on the timeless Billiard is rather Stack-like in its execution as the soaring, deep-chambered bowl commands much of the visual weight. Said bowl is surrounded by reassuringly stout chamber walls while the thick shank continues the bowl's muscularity before the lengthy vulcanite mouthpiece wraps everything up. Just as impressive as the shaping is the gorgeous grain on display here. Tight streaks of straight grain cascade down the towering bowl while the underside is dominated by birdseye, handsomely highlighted by the stummel's warm chestnut stain. And just when you thought it couldn't get any better, this piece is still unsmoked.- Jeffery Sitts
