Just finished up this nifty little billiard. It has a Danish look to it to me. It is stamped A. Garfinkel Wash DC Algerian Briar. It has a very unusual rustication pattern that I like the shank has a smooth band at the stem and a smooth patch for the stamping. The bowl has a chamfered rim that is smooth and nicely grained. It was dirty and had no lustre at all. I reamed and cleaned it and restained it with a medium brown aniline stain. Here are a couple of before pics:

And after the restain and polish:

Sharp looking pipe, Steve. That re-stain turned out really nice!
