Lapple? Apvat? Call it what you will, this is a smooth and shapely Apple bowl perched at the end of a long, trim Lovat's shank and stem. And that's just fine by me. The shape looks great, the finish is rich and handsome, it's soft and comforting in hand, and they definitely didn't skimp on the sterling silver - that's not some thin band wrapped around the end of the shank, that's a nearly 1/8"-thick proper precious metal reinforcement.
