Italian Estates: Castello 'Castello' Billiard (KKKK) (2013)
Product Number: 004-006-23130
A firm-heeled, neoclassic rendition of the Italian Billiard, this piece is classic Castello. The protruding heel gives way to a rising bowl that's as bold and thick-walled as ever, offering plenty of chamber and surface area for wrapped fingers. Behind, the oval shank and abbreviated tapered stem hint at the Canadian and lend the profile a streamlined stance. While the contrast stain and grain are certainly alluring, what's most enjoyable are the subtle ridgelines that meander around the bowl for some added texture in hand. There's some minor rim charring, handling marks, and chamber shows some scraping and mild carbonizing, but condition otherwise is good.-Truett Smith
