Sure, the Karl Erik stamp is associated with superlative bent shapes, and rightfully so. Erik's bent Brandies, Balls and Eggs always fell close to perfection of form, and a potential buyer never had to settle for an iffy grain in order to obtain a sweet execution. Here we have an all-too-rare reminder that Karl Erik's ability to create a righteously traditional, straight Danish neoclassic didn't lag behind his acumen of dealing with curves. Nor (again) is there an trade off between excellence of shape and grain.
