Ashton: Old Church Bent Billiard with Silver Army Mount (XXX)
Product Number: 002-006-2596
Few shapes are as classic and iconic as the bent Billiard and when rendered by a marque like Ashton that's steeped in traditional shaping cues, you known you're in for something truly special. Each offering showcases Ashton's versatility when it comes to crafting timeless English shapes, presenting them in a variety of finishes and often pairing them to colorful stems of brindled vulcanite. This particular offering features a stout, poised bowl paired to a well-defined transition that gives way to an elegantly arcing shank and stem combination out back. The stummel has been treated to the crisp Old Church tanblast, unveiling a lively mix of blasted birdseye along the right flank and rippling grain along the left flank. The brindled vulcanite stem's mix of burnt orange and black tones complements the stummel's warm stain perfectly and is attached to the shank via a sterling silver army mount, allowing for the pipe to be easily broken down at any time.- Jeffery Sitts
