Made from Italian Plateaux with a hand cut German Ebonite Stem and integral tenon.

This is a beautiful pipe with excellent grain--flame and straight all the way around the bowl and along the sides of the stem--flowing out of birdseye the top and bottom. One small sand speck on the top is all I have found, otherwise it appears to be perfectly clean.

It is quite large, but remains graceful. It will not likely to be a comfortable clencher, but feels light for it size.
