Back in the 1980s Bill Taylor was one of the true innovators of the pipe making world. Taking his leave from Dunhill after a 25 year career that began as a teenage apprentice culminating in his being in charge of quality control, Bill opened Ashton Pipes and made some of the most unique pieces to grace the pipe smoking world since the 1920s. we have a Magnum Poker in the Pebble Grain finish. According to a well known NY collector the burls Bill used for the magnums made in the '80s were up to 250 years old.

The bowl is 31/8" tall, with a 1" tobacco chamber . The walls are 1/2" thick and the overall length is 9".

When these magnums were first produced they cost in the thousands of dollars. A magnificent deep blast that has to be seen to be appreciated.
