Danish Estates: Poul Ilsted Smooth Lovat with Silver (1G)
Product Number: 004-001-14437
Poul Ilsted is known for pieces that pair structure with grace, such as his bent Dublin and Bulldog shapes, with their paneled shanks and gestural curves. This Lovat is not one of those, however. Rather, it's a straight and upright take on the classic shape chart standard, with just a bit of taper to its bowl and a sleek, otherwise fairly traditional profile — catering toward Danish renditions of the form. The shape is simply incredible, fashioned to bring out the best of the grain: The stain brings out swaths of nearly-straight grain, and it's all topped off by a handsome band of sterling silver. It should be noted that while the silver accent is original, but after years of use and buffing, it's no longer perfectly flush with the shank.-Truett Smith
