Elegantly conceived, and smartly executed, this undeniably attractive bent Brandy is classic Tonni Nielsen. Even if one hadn't a clue as to who made this beauty, one glance at the exacting manner in which the implied line of the bit bisects the rounding transition on the fore of the bowl, and it becomes patently clear that a pro was in the house. There are times when I almost believe that Tonni could stain a briar with road asphalt, and still
show off a fine grain. This dark walnut stain, while understated and sophisticated, should (well, in theory) almost make any grain a secondary consideration. Not so within the magic realm of Tonni Nielsen.
