Italian Estates: Ardor Giant Meteora Bent Billiard (DR) (2005) (John Eells)
Product Number: 004-006-7607
While not nearly as rare as Giants carved by his father, Dorelio, Damiano Giants still don't exactly grow on trees. Well, okay, part of them does, but you get the point. This example, though, is something particularly special, having designed both by and and as a dedication to American pipemaker John Eells, who was responsible for the birth of the Ardor Giant grade itself
. We've only ever seen two other examples of this special series.
