Acrylic stems have been around since the late sixties, at least. This gave pipe makers the option of stems in virtually any color, and a lot of them were pretty loud. Comoy's, being one of the oldest and more traditional companies decided to go a more tasteful route when they introduced the Silver Cloud line. This Comoy Silver Cloud Straight Billiard in in very nice shape and has been thoroughly reconditioned. It features a deep, craggy sandblast finished in dark red. The stem is a silver-gray acrylic with the Comoy's "C" inset, and it has a sterling silver band. The stem is in good shape with just a touch of discoloration showing through from the airway. It's a handsome pipe and priced to sell.
