French Estates: Butz-Choquin Caprice Rusticated Bent Billiard (1775)

Product Number: 004-003-0870

Using aluminum as an accent ring is something quite a few pipe factories do these days because it does look similar to silver and keep the productions costs down (and unlike silver, it doesn't oxidize either). Butz-Choquin also chose the option of a pearlescent red and white stem which captures light - and holds it - like a semi-precious stone.
