English Estates: Charatan's Make Sandblasted Billiard (4420DC) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 004-002-33811
One of the oldest English marques, Charatan played a significant role in the origins of the English pipe making tradition, centered around simple, lightweight pipe stylings. However, many of Charatan's designs incorporate dynamic shaping, altering established English pipe archetypes. Despite the marque's experimental reputation, this Billiard by Charatan is a traditional, British shape-chart standard design devoid of flourishes, likely a choice to draw attention to the stunning briar grain. The stummel is adorned with a chestnut sandblast that exposes the distinctive squiggles of growth rings that dance around the bowl, which provide an expressive texture.--Zach Podl
