Ashton: Claret Billiard with Silver (XX) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-006-3751
Bill Ashton-Taylor got his start making pipes for Dunhill, but after mastering the craft, realized he needed to set out on his own, so he founded the British marque Ashton. Sadly, Bill passed away in 2009, but pipe maker Jimmy Craig proudly carries on the Ashton name. This Billiard by Ashton is a classically-inclined rendering of the shape, featuring an upright bowl, proportional shank, and tapered stem. However, the iconic profile is dressed in the modern tones of the Claret finish, a ruby-hued sandblast that highlights craggy growth rings in stunning color. Additionally, a broad silver band provides a distinguished, dazzling accent.--Zach Podl
