Rinaldo: Lithos Rusticated Rhodesian (YY) (SL-9)
Product Number: 002-031-0274
We've seen a number of Rhodesian shapes from the Rinaldo brothers but nothing quite like this. With its tall, bulbous bowl and flowing transition, I'd be tempted to call this one a Danish-esque bent Egg if not for the high-waisted beadline. Nevertheless, it is a shape that just works to my eye, with this lofty bowl accentuating the number's smooth curves and subtle S-bend. With its extra-dark rustication and elegant, smooth polished rim, bead-line, and shank end, the finish is a perfect fit for Guido's smart silverwork at the mount. All in all, a handsome, and somewhat novel take on the classic shape. But then again, would we expect anything less from the masterful duo?
