German Estates: Wolfgang Becker Smooth Bent Egg with Bamboo (7)
Product Number: 004-005-4128
Wolfgang changed his grading system in 2011 from ascending numbers and letters, to the well-known single or multiple "Wolf Paw" stamping. This "7" was produced before the change and indicates one of his higher grades, which is no surprise given the flame grain that graces both flanks of the bowl, as well a the impressive field of birdseye covering the fore. If you are a fan of his work, it might be a good idea to pull the trigger on this one quickly, as it is only the second Becker with bamboo that we have had our hands on.
