English Estates: BBB Own Make Virgin Apple (150)
Product Number: 004-002-29776
BBB, or, Britain's Best Briars, has been producing fine pipes for over 150 years, and this Apple is one of them, a trim, and slightly lengthy piece with a demure shank and stem combination. The bulbous bowl is nearly circular, the pencil thin shank transitioning cleanly, curving almost as soon as it reaches its full travel, while the underside and heel are flat, sitting stably. A warm mahogany stain dresses the stummel, revealing a cross grain structure, where lakes of birdseye lay on the flanks, horizontal grain traveling up the fore and aft of the bowl.-John McElheny
