English Estates: Ashton Old Church Billiard with Silver (XXX) (2021)
Product Number: 004-002-29804
Well on the trimmer end of Ashton's size spectrum, this Billiard thrusts much of the visual weight toward the muscular bowl up front. The bowl's visual presence is further accentuated by the sleek saddle stem; however, my favorite feature here is the sandblasted finish. The Old Church sandblast has unveiled a captivating array of undulating ring grain around the bowl, providing a good bit of crisp texture for the fingers to wander over. Sterling silver accents further commend this composition, with a band gracing shank end while even more of the precious metal adorns the rim and will guard against charring. It's a stunning piece that will easily stand out in any collection.- Jeffery Sitts
