Ashton: Sovereign Achievement Billiard with Silver (XXX) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-006-3560
This straight Billiard from Ashton highlights the English marque's quality craftsmanship and exhibits plenty of creative flair. The "Achievement" stamp is a special one from the English marque, a designation Jimmy Craig reserves for pipes with alternative accenting materials or unique shaping cues, the latter being the case for this particular example. The bowl is treated to a distinctive beehive-like finish above the transition, the concentric grooves both visually and texturally intriguing. Here, the stummel is wearing a warm chestnut stain, which is elevated by a bright band of silver at the shank end, then topped by an orange and black tapered stem of vulcanite.-Angela Robertson
