Although it's a rather conservative piece (compared to Ardor's Fantasy line among others), this bent Bulldog sports some interesting design choices. The bowl is rather tall with Billiard-like, Italian proportions. Instead of the traditional diamond paneling we find on classic Bulldogs, however, Damiano presents a triangular shank that allows this number's bold curves to extend along the heel and up into a rather unorthodox, exaggerated fishtail-like bit - resulting in a remarkably fluid composition (especially for a Bulldog). It is presented here in the Marte's smooth golden finish with plenty of sweeping flame throughout.
