American Estates: Maigurs Knets Sandblasted Bent Rhodesian (291)
Product Number: 004-009-5779
In shape alone, this particular piece is not as wildly possessed of Art Nouveau flourishes as many of Maigurs's designs, there's still no little novelty to be found in its sandblasted finish, which is covered with nine beautiful butterfly carvings encircling the bowl and shank. Maigurs, it seems, is trying to keep the shape from becoming overly feminine, by pairing the design with a stoutly masculine Rhodesian shape, almost of "nose warmer" proportions, and bearing charming little nuances. The stem, for instance, drifts slightly downwards, instilling some grace in the piece. The final result is something akin to a Pit Bull pup wearing a bow.
