At first glance the proportions of this Rad Davis bent Brandy reminded me of something I'd expect to see from Luigi Radice, but the shaping is, if anything, even more plump, creating an impression simultaneously voluptuous, curvaceous, yet anything but languid. Indeed, this design seems downright vivacious. "Buxom and boisterous," I think, sums it up nicely. Not content with beauty of form alone, Rad has made use of one exquisite piece of briar, resulting in a fittingly lush and lively flame grain dressing both flanks in their entirety.
