Danish Estates: Manduela Smooth Bulldog with Bone
Product Number: 004-001-16721
Manduela's Bulldog renditions are often quite sleek, though this low-slung piece is one of my favorites of the number I've seen. Rather than the traditional diamond shank, it features a wide, rectangular shape with crisp edges, as well as just the slightest of ridges top and bottom. The bowl is low-set and slightly forward-canted, giving its base a hint of undercurve where the shank's ridge extends, further emphasized by high-set beadlines, the topmost rounding the lower edge of the rim's bevel. Throw in a crisp, jaunty heel, a vibrant contrast stain, and an accent band of pale bone, and the piece catches the eye immediately — maintained even further by its soft, blue-hued vulcanite mouthpiece. Smoked, but in very good condition.- Jeffery Sitts
