Both Adam and I were somewhat taken off guard by this flowing Castello, with its curious, forward-urging bowl. Not because of the shaping mind you, though this is one of the more interesting Billiard variations I've seen from Castello, but rather the stem accent. I've never seen mammoth ivory on a Castello before, and, in actuality, Adam isn't entirely certain it is ivory. I guessed boar tusk, perhaps, but that typically possesses a recognizable wavy pattern.
