Italian Estates: Aldo Velani Fumata Briar Smooth Billiard (74) (Unsmoked)
Product Number: 004-006-14593
Though it isn't terribly common, the "fumed" look is still very much an Italian thing; I can't recall if I've ever even seen a non-Italian pipe sporting it. What this type of secondary finish consists of is simply an intentional darkening of the rim and upper bowl, adding an extra-smokey style to the briar.
