English Estates: James Upshall Sandblasted Billiard Tobacco Pipe

Product Number: 004-002-34753

The James Upshall pipe was first produced as a line of ultra-premium pieces from the workshop of Kenneth Barnes and Barry Jones, who split from Charatan in 1978, the company named after one of Barne's pipe smoking relatives: James Archelaus Upshall. Upshall pipes have acquired widespread acclaim since their founding, owing to the brand's fastidious focus on perfection in both engineering and shaping. Though unfortunately, Kenneth Barnes passed away in 2021, Upshall pipes are still produced today, staying true to the high standards which they set for themselves in 1978. This Billiard rendition features an affably rounded, plump bowl paired to a comparatively trim stretch of shank and saddle stem. Said bowl is comfortable in hand and sits at the end of a wide transition, taking on a stolid and bold stance as it sits straight up from atop the flattened underside. Dressed in a warm tanblast, the stummel here showcases some handsome grain throughout, with the black vulcanite stem offering a classic aesthetic.
