I have seen 3 designations: Sea Rock, Sea Rock Briar, and Old Sea Rock. Does anyone know if there are actual differences between these. Curious about this.
That is called a “fumed” top. In the last year or so, the Castello workshop has stamped many of those with the “fumed” top as Old Sea Rock. But I have one that is just stamped Sea Rock, purchased new in 2018. I also have an Old Sea Rock from the 1980’s that does not have the “”fumed” top. Many older American market light finish rusticated with the “fumed” top we’re stamped Old Antiquari, at a time when elsewhere in the world the Old Antiquari stamp was for sandblasted pipes. I said it was complicated. :DI like the natural one that gets gradually darker towards the rim of the bowl. How is that one called?
