Italian Estates: Ascorti Smooth Billiard (KS)
Product Number: 004-006-23378
With a particularly wide tobacco chamber, this Billiard reveals its maker with an offset saddle stem, and it's Italian heritage with its forward-oriented heel. Dissimilar to American and Danish traditions, which typically utilize a concave curve for the entire vertical aspect of the bowl, Ascorti has here chosen a convex curve on the stem side of the bowl. In a dark walnut stain and with a surface filled with mixed- and flame-grain, and a chamber large enough to last beyond the norm, this piece offers a traditional shape with all the creative modifications we anticipate from Ascorti.- Chuck Stanion
