Quite a full and ripe one, this bent Apple's bowl is nearly the size of a real apple. The shank is likewise stout and accented by a thin metal band. The finish is a dark rustication with a pleasing texture. The Kinsale series borrows from Peterson's Sherlock Holmes collections, offering the collector edition shapes at a "non-collector's" price. This "XL23" is based on the "Le Strade" after the Scotland Yard inspector who often called upon Holmes for assistance in difficult cases.
