English Estates: James Upshall Smooth Billiard (S) (Unsmoked) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 004-002-31846
This Billiard from James Upshall is a fine example of why Barry Jones has been considered one of the best carvers in the business for decades. A classically inclined piece, this Billiard boasts a prominent, tall bowl that houses a generous chamber for long smoking sessions. The proportions, while larger, retain the balance characteristic of English shaping. A soft heel curls into a low, subtly muscular round shank that tapers into saddle stem, slightly bent, giving the pipe a classy yet playful aesthetic. The stummel is dressed in a deep ruby finish that brings out the excellent grain in this pipe, stamped "S" to denote its high quality briar. This pipe is sure to please anyone who enjoys classic English style and workmanship.-Gabriel Bass
