Ashton: Sovereign Billiard with Silver (XX) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-006-3688
Ashton is renowned for its sandblasted finishes, continuing the English tradition of concise texture and handsome grain. Such is offered here in this rather lengthy Sovereign Billiard, dressed in a lighter stain and paired to a tapered cumberland stem of considerable reach, its deep hues offering a wealth of contrast. The form hews closely to the shape chart standard for a timeless style that's furthered by a gleaming silver military mount, adding durability to the shank and allowing for easy break down and cleaning. The flashy accoutrement works in tandem with the rest of the piece's light color palette to create a quite lively aesthetic. The smooth, sovereign finish of the stummel not only makes this piece a rather rare offering from the workshop, especially in this profile, and showcases some wonderful birdseye on either flank of the bowl.-John McElheny
