English Estates: Dunhill Ring Grain (4203) (2002)
Product Number: 004-002-19380
To earn Dunhill's Ring Grain stamp, a piece has to have a pretty impressive array of, well, ring grain, and this "03" saddle-stemmed Billiard certainly doesn't disappoint in that area: Crisp and pulsating waves stack all the way up the firm, stout bowl, offering a wealth of texture and visual appeal. It's rendered here in Group 4 proportions and is able to sit sturdily thanks to the shank's flattened underside. To see the "03" with a saddle stem is relatively uncommon and to find one that earned the marque's prestigious Ring Grain designation is even rarer, making this piece even more desirable.- Truett Smith
