Huzzah! I can do this one:
Grand Duke 50S
Lark
Starfire 69y
Westbrook 69s

Thanks, Trey. The Starfires with the metal shank extension are my favorites. Good smokers with the tenon cleaner even.

Classy set.  The Westy is pretty.  Does it have panelled sides, or is that an optical delusion?

Hey Spadefan,thanks. That's not paneled. That's all gloss, baby. Factory original finish with some elbow grease and Paragon wax.

That rustication on the Royal Duke is the only one Ive seen like it.  Anyone have an idea whether its an early version or a later Lane concoction?

Heres a better pic of it.
JoeMan

Wow, first I've seen.
WayneD

Those are some beauties, fellas. I have never seen a 119 before Joe, that is cool. SF I really dig that emperor.
C.E. Purdy

Y = long shank + short saddle stem = lovat shape

I was pretty sure of that, but not quite sure.  Thanks.

Nice pipes, boys.  I enjoy this a lot.  I bet there are more billiards out there to show!

Here's on from Uncle Richie he sent me to clean up and sell for him. It's listed on eBay:


Troy_nov1965

Nice billiards everyone .

Its hard to beat a billiard, a true classic form that i never tire of .
Spadefan

Thought Id bump this thread one more time in hopes to coax out another billiard or three that we havnt seen.

And another try on this one.  
Anyone seen this carving before on Grabows?  Any idea if older style of more recent Lane?

JoeMan

Or something that a talented smoker did himself...

JoeMan

Late entry, but a very nice addition to the thread, Scott!
elliottws

New job and schedule keeps me mostly as a reader. [/list]
