The Pettinate is L'Anatra's own unique take on the classic "dress" presentation. Ebony finish? Check. Bright sterling silver? Also, check. But in place of the traditional smooth polish, Massimo and Andrea instead go for an ultra-fine striated texture, well complemented by a high gloss. The result offers a pleasing play of light as it shimmers amongst the countless tiny grooves, as well as a more interesting texture in hand.
