Italian Estates: Luigi Viprati Smooth Sitter (Four Clover)

Product Number: 004-006-9552

This freehand dublin from Luigi Viprati is quite a bit different from most of his presentations, in fact, it actually looks like a more conservative execution of a form that was popular in the Lane-era Charatans. The first tier of the bowl is classic Dublin, and sports a superlative straight grain. The initial shapes collapses a bit suggesting the start of a rim, only to reform and dome which keeps a great grain going.
