$ 245 Sold, Thanks!

Specs :
Grade: C
Height: 2.18" (55 mm)
Diameter: 1.61 " (41 mm) side to side at the top and 1.96 (50 mm) front to back.
Overall Length: 6.7" (170 mm)

Weight: 2.0 oz (58 grams)

Made from Italian Plateaux with a half saddle hand cut German Ebonite stem with an integral tenon. A medium sized Dublin with beautiful straight grain nearly completely around the bowl and along the side of the shank with just a hint of fall out. The grain is flowing from birdseye top and bottom. Two small flaws on the top, and a few small sand pits keep this a Grade C, and a very good value for this much grain. Very well balanced with a large capacity for it's moderate size.
