Italian Estates: Castello Flame 2 Billiard (F2) (2012)
Product Number: 004-006-29275
Castello has rendered a neoclassic version of the straight Billiard here, its towering bowl well more than two inches tall and quite stout, as well. Able to sit sturdily upright, out back, a low-set transition leads to an oval stretch of shank, topped by an abbreviated, tapered stem. Proportionately pleasing, this particular example is dressed in the Flame 2 series, proudly carrying on the melting wax motif that's becoming more and more popular in Italian pipe making. Finished in a warm, mahogany stain, this Billiard also boasts some fine-looking flame grain, especially on the left flank, while the rim wears the briar's natural, craggy plateau, from which the "wax" dribbles, providing a neat contrast in this great-looking piece.-Angela Robertson
