Castello: 'Castello' Milano Billiard with Silver Rice Band (54/150)
Product Number: 002-386-2332
The fifty-fourth of only 150 pipes produced in a select, limited-edition run in 2015, this Castello Milano is certainly a collector's gem. The shape alone is stunning: a stout-walled, bold, Italian neo-classical take on the old Billiard, equipped with a saddle stem and a neat Lovat style distribution of visual weight. Then you have the grain — a gorgeous display of deep-set, whirling birdseye and crossgrain, itself arguably worthy of an Occhio di Pernice designation. Sounds like a beautiful combination already, no doubt, but Castello took it one step further, adorning the piece with a bold, ornate sterling silver accent band with a high-relief rice-grain motif along the top — a feature unique to this special, limited-edition Milano series.
