Ashton: Sovereign Achievement Billiard (ELX) (SG)
Product Number: 002-006-2667
The second largest size designation for Ashton pipes, this "ELX" Billiard is a truly massive, substantial take on the timeless form and exhibits plenty of creative flair. The "Achievement" stamp is a special one from the English marque, a designation that Jimmy Craig reserves for pipes with alternative accenting materials or unique shaping cues, the letter being the case for this particular example. The soaring, deep-chambered bowl is positioned at a dramatic forward cant, maintaining its muscularity from its firm heel all the way up toward its broad rim. The transition is seamlessly smooth in its execution, set low and slightly elongated to accentuate the bowl's commanding visual presence. And while the shaping and overall size of this piece is undoubtedly impressive, the grain orientation is superb and expertly illuminated by a rich auburn stain. A mix of straight and flame grain wraps around bowl's flanks, its extra surface area being utilized to its maximum potential and offering plenty of captivating grain to admire.- Jeffery Sitts
