    1900 BBB Billiard Restored

    I can't thank Anthony/Piffyr enough for the work he did restoring my 1900 BBB billiard with the all-silver screw fitment. The bowl was in pretty rough shape when I bought it, but now it looks nothing short of amazing. In this case, the pictures really do speak for themselves.

    Here's what the pipe looked like before:

    It did come out very well Wes. I'd been asking Anthony how this project was coming along over the course of the last six to eight weeks or so; so I had a sneak peak at the after pictures!

    Full album is here if others want to take a more detailed look.

    That's a substantial transformation sir in saving a beaut of a pipe and history, certainly a pipe anyone would be proud to own now.

    They certainly were, Bill. A wonderful, historical pipe indeed, Wes...Congrats! And, I might add, a terrific restoration by Anthony, too.

    After all of the statistics and reports are finished with, I've come to the conclusion that the only real danger of smoking a pipe is being interrupted.
