Danish Estates: Jess Chonowitsch Smooth Billiard with Bamboo
Product Number: 004-001-13640
A true master of the craft, Jess Chonowitsch is renowned for his exquisite execution of Danish classics, making his pieces highly sought after, especially on the estate market. Here, the Danish great offers a traditional straight Billiard marked by a plump disposition and subtle taper toward the rounded rim. Behind, the shank is extended by two knuckles of creamy yellow bamboo fitted to a reinforced tenon and jet-black saddle stem. Expertly shaped and seamlessly crafted, the profile is defined by the low-set heel — Chonowitsch has protruded it slightly to continue the implied momentum created by the bamboo's knuckles, while also affording a more substantial feel in hand. Grain-wise, it doesn't get much more perfect than this: a band of cross grain runs almost perfectly through the center, dividing the bowl into two flanks of dizzying birdseye. Condition-wise, there's some scraping in the top of the chamber and small handling marks, but otherwise condition is very good.-Truett Smith
