Danish Estates: S. Bang Smooth Bent Apple with Silver Band (7) (9mm)
Product Number: 004-001-5509
While designs like this, with their rounded little bowls and sturdily-proportioned, yet playfully flowing shanks and stems, only make up a fraction of the S. Bang briars floating around out there, they are easily Per and Ulf's most recognizable, and most often emulated works. Handy, neither too heavy nor by any means too delicate, and quite simply utterly charming, it's easy to see why they hold a special place, both in personal collections, and in terms of influence upon other artisans both within and outside the Danish school.
