IMP Meerschaum: Smooth Bent Billiard with Silver (with Case)
Product Number: 002-316-3972
This certainly is an interesting interpretation of a bent Billiard from IMP Meerschaum: a curvaceous yet angular piece with many differing facets that create a striking profile. The stem bends deeply to an expansion ring finished with a military-style silver band before the tenon, feeding into the acrylic bolstered shank. The shank's underside has only a short stretch of uninterrupted flow before a spur juts out suddenly, a short cliff denoting the start of the heel, a wide, sweeping affair that forms a singular, wrapping ridgeline spanning the circumference of the underside. the bowl rises from this heel at a short taper, the combination evoking the look of the Volcano shape, rising straight up to a thick rim. This is a meerschaum meant to be smoked, to be admired, and to slowly patinate over the years.-John McElheny
