Misc. Estates: Dirk Claessen Sandblasted Billiard (Unsmoked)
Product Number: 004-008-5727
A Belgian pipemaker living in Spain, Dirk Claessen was most influenced by the late Rainer Barbi. This Billiard displays strong Danish influence, however, with a Brandy-ish Billiard bowl, its low waistline bringing the visual center of balance down to the heel. With vertically oriented growth rings rising up the bowl and sandblasted birdseye on either flank, it's brightened by a copper accent between two rings of malachite green, and in unsmoked condition.- Chuck Stanion
