THIS IS A SEVEN-DAY, NO RESERVE , AND INTERNATIONAL COLLECTABLE BRIAR PIPE AUCTION.

PLEASE ALL OF THE OTHER BEAUTIFUL, NEW, OR FULLY RESTORED AND RECONDITIONED HIGH GRADE COLLECTABLE PIPES THAT I HAVE LISTED FOR AUCTION THIS WEEK ON EBAY!

You are bidding on an early production Ashton "Pebble Grain" XXX sized, sandblasted, straight classic "Billiard" shaped pipe that was carved by William Ashton Taylor, in England, in 1988. This pipe possesses an exceptionally beautiful and defined sandblasted tight ring grain finish. The briarwood is very old, as you can see from this tight and defined sandblasting. The carving is equisite. This pipe was craftd during a time when Bill Taylor was proving to the pipe collecting world that he could produce a classic shaped pipe that was made better than his former employer's (Dunhill) pipes. This pipe is solid evidence of Bill Taylor's talented ability! Ashton pipes are oil cured, just like the Dunhill pipes of yesteryear. This produces a very sweet smoking pipe with a very easy break-in period. Don't miss this opportunity to own and enjoy this wonderful pipe! The blance is perfect. The hand feel is extremley comfortable. The draft is nice and easy. This is a fabulous example of an early period Ashton pipe!

I have thoroughly, meticulously, and carefully cleaned, polished, sanitized,

are the dimensions of this gorgeous pipe (It really is much closer to an LX in size): The overall length is about 6.50". The bowl height is about 2.10". The tobacco chamber is about 0.875" in diameter, and tapers down the bowl's 1.875" inner depth. Capacity and size are both about 20% greater than that a Dunhill Group ODA size pipe. This pipe weighs 83 grams.

Once again, this is a seven-day no reserve pipe auction. I do not believe in "Reserve" or "Buy it Now" prices. I want the lucky high bidder to own and enjoy smoking this pipe and not have him frustrate himself with bidding on a pipe that is not attainable on a price basis! Just be the high bidder at the close of this auction, and you will win what could again prove to be the best looking as well as the best smoking pipe in your collection!
