Just because a swan has a non-traditional color doesn't mean it isn't beautiful. This is the same principal we see in Rattray's Black Swan tobacco pipes. These pipes, which could have very easily been given a smooth finish and light contrast stain, have instead been stained a dark black. To fight against the dark colors a chrome plated brass application lies in the middle. The stem of this Rattray's pipe features the company's famous Triskele logo.
