Castello: 'Castello' Milano Billiard with Silver Wheat Band (25.150)
Product Number: 002-386-4090
One 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 neoclassical take on the straight Billiard, equipped with a saddle stem and a neat, Lovat-style distribution of visual weight. Then you have the grain — a gorgeous display of flame grain along the flanks. 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.- Andrew Wike
