Eight-Ball Pipes

The Game of Billiards

Developed in the 14th century from a lawn game similar to Croquet, the first mentioning of Billiards was found in the 1470 inventory of Louis IX, King of France.

Over time, Billiards evolved to an indoors game and became popular among European nobility and commoners alike. The body of Mary, Queen of Scots was even wrapped in the cover of her beloved Billiard table in 1586. By mid 1600, table versions similar to today’s tables first appeared. By the 1850’s the game had spread across all the continents.

The word Billiard is believed to have derived from either the French term Billart or Billette (meaning stick) or Bille (for balls).

The two main varieties of Billiard are Carom (or Carambolage) and Pool Billiard. While a Carom table has no pockets, a Pool table has 6 pockets or ‘pools’.

Eight-Ball, also called ‘Stripes and Solids’, a variety of Pool Billiard, was invented in early 1900 and is today the world’s most popular cue sport.

THE LIMITED EDITION
EIGHT-BALL PIPES

These Eight-Ball pipes have been specifically created and manufactured to celebrate the tradition of Gentlemen’s Gamesmanship.

The Eight-Ball pipe is a very elegant group 4 size; specially turned for this edition, the bowls are a non-standard shape with their spherical head being reminiscent of the curves of a Billiard ball. The black finishes imitate the black Eight-Ball, the last ball to be potted to finish the game. Each pipe is fitted with an elongated Sterling Silver Army mount and is engraved ‘Eight Ball’.

The mouthpieces, manufactured from solid Cumberland rods, are hand-shaped like modern Billiard cues and are evocative of the wood the cues are made from. The long pipe tamper, also shaped from matching Cumberland material, are miniature versions of Billiard cue rests, its foot and iconic cross being made from finest Sterling Silver.

The highly collectable Eight-Ball pipes and tampers are presented in a prestigious leather-bound book. Its front gives the birds-eye perspective of a green-clothed Pool table. Each set is accompanied by its numbered and hand-signed limited edition certificate.

This edition series is strictly limited to only 100 pipes in Black Briar and 100 pipes in Shell Briar finish.

World-wide launch September 2009
