Smooth Snail with Bone (Viking)

Product Number: 002-192-0232

While the graining of this rather robust Snail design isn't as symmetrical as others I've seen in the Viking grade, I can easily see why Tonni Nielsen thought this a particularly fine piece. For one thing, aside from the flame grain being fine-stranded, dense, and quite straight throughout, there's also a full 360-degress of it, and where it is encroached upon, along the left flank, it's by the birdseye, which apparently wasn't content to be kept hidden down on the underside. The latter grain also makes a fine showing along the upper surface of the shank's face and curl, though, sure enough, it's best presentation is at the rim, where a dense, subtly contrasted pattern is packed within plateau-accented borders.
