Ashton: Pebble Grain Tomato with Silver (XX) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-006-3432
Jimmy Craig of Ashton often hews closely to English shape-chart standards, maintaining the workshop's reputation for classically timeless pipes. That doesn't mean he doesn't sometimes stray from the norm though. This Tomato is one such piece, marked by an extra-squat, broad-waisted bowl. Most unique, however, is the higher placement of the transition, which lends prominence to the heel and gives the bowl an even more spherical disposition. This piece is finished in the craggy texture of the Pebble Grain sandblast and dressed in a dark, ruby-tinged stain that pairs nicely with the tapered, vulcanite mouthpiece. A bright sterling silver band lightens the composition, adding a regal, sophisticated touch that further elevates the piece overall.-Truett Smith
