Danish Estates: Former Sandblasted Acorn
Product Number: 004-001-15430
While the form of this Acorn is quite traditional and unassuming, the sandblasted finish and intricately carved stem base all point to the deft craftsmanship of Hans "Former" Nielsen. Palm-filling and thick of insulating walls, the bowl hosts a generous chamber and fits superbly in hand, the neat transition making for a perfect thumb rest. It's all founded upon a consistent, underlying curve from shank-end through the heel before tightening suddenly at the bowl's high-set waistline. Dressed in one of Nielsen's renowned sandblasts, the texture is exquisite, accented by a smooth polished rim and one of the Danish artisan's signature, flaring stem-bases. Excellent condition too.-Truett Smith
