Modernistic Blue-White Acrylic Stem Billiard  I recently acquired this acrylic stem Billiard in what I call the French Lot of 50 which I acquired from the French eBay auction block.  There are no markings on the pipe indicating origin, but my guess is that the COM is France.  The upper stummel’s white hue transitions nicely into the deep ocean blue that is picked up in a striking way in the blue acrylic stem – which seems almost to have fire.  This pipe has been thoroughly cleaned and refreshed, and is ready for a new steward.  Length: 6 inches, Height: 2 inches, Rim diameter: 1 3/8 inches; Chamber diameter 3/4 inches, Chamber depth: 1 3/4 inches.   SALE PENDING Price $65USD + Postage to be paid by buyer.

A Unique Rustified Kiko 343 Made in Tanganiyka Meer-lined Billiard – The rustification on this pipe is unique.  It pulls one toward the African roots of Tanganyika, now Tanzania.  The appearance reminds one of cork which by the very nature of the material is imperfect but durable.  This Kiko wears his imperfections well – the fills evident on the stummel surface seem to belong and mark the difficulties this pipe has had along the way, but now ready to go again.  The grain nuanced as a backdrop to the rustification, has subtle patterns that remind one of tiger fur.  The Meerschaum lining looks great and will provide the Kiko’s next steward the ability to enjoy a bowl of his favorite blend and immediately reload for another smoke without needing to rest the pipe.

      I wish I did. I have several Peretti pipes in the “Help me!” Basket but I’m in the US now and my work table is back in Bulgaria. It will be next February before I could get to it. I have several Oom Paul’s, a half bent Billiard and an Extra large straight Billiard available to restore but not until February! You can see these pipes pictured on my restoration of a Large Full Egg from that same Peretti lot (https://thepipesteward.com/2017/08/10/revitalizing-a-distinctive-l-j-peretti-of-boston-large-full-bent-egg/). Let me know if you can wait!
