Castello: Old Antiquari Billiard (KKKK)
Product Number: 002-386-3511
The square shank and balanced proportions between bowl and shank lend this Castello Billiard a more classic English disposition compared to the bowl-centric, Italian neoclassic proportions often seen throughout the Italian workshop's portfolio. That said, this is quite a robust rendition of the form, on par with some of the largest pieces one would expect from an English marque, but one that fits rather squarely within Castello's size spectrum. The taper from transition to bit is a stylistic signature of Castello's, and the flat bottom makes this a reliable desk pipe — commended by a reserved, dark-stained iteration of the Old Antiquari sandblast.-Truett Smith
