Tonni Nielsen: Smooth Snail (Viking)
Product Number: 002-192-0231
Lighter, yet also bolder in line and form than most other Tonni Nielsen Snail/Nautilus designs, this Viking-grade number presents quite a high-set, proudly flaring - indeed trumpeting - bowl, something which is emphasized by both the particularly crisp, plateau-edged rim, and the manner in which Tonni left the "tail" of the shank free-floating. And of course, as a Viking, the both the flame grain of the bowl and shank, and the birdseye of the rim are spectacular, though presented in an understated manner, courtesy of an extra-dark walnut contrast finish
