This is one of Ser Jacopo's more reserved designs - "more" being the key word there. For the most part it's classically proportioned, and the lines are clean and simple. It just happens to be a Stack; a very tall, very deep-chambered Stack, handsomely finished and sporting a sterling silver band. This makes for a nice find, as the Stack, perhaps because it's a shape born out of serving a function rather than some artistic flourish of form, tends to be rendered in a spare, and more often than not sandblasted, style.
