Italian Estates: Iwan Ries Straight Grain Billiard (111 KS) (by Savinelli)

Product Number: 004-006-8647

The stout "111" is so recognizable a Savinelli shape that I didn't even need to check the stamping to identify this Billiard's origins. This particular example, made for the Iwan Ries tobacconist, most certainly has not been pampered - I don't even know how you get rim darkening beneath the rim as this briar has endured at two spots, one on it's right flank and the other around back. and yet, endured it has, this robust, straight classic still retaining sound walls, and ready to serve someone else as a good smoker.
