Danish Estates: S. Bang Smooth Asymmetrical Bent Egg (A)
Product Number: 004-001-17917
Paneled along the left flank and rounded on the right, with both sides studded with birdseye, this cross-grained asymmetrical Egg from S. Bang provides is a lithe and forward-impelled creation from the legendary Danish workshop. The cheeking at the transition is precise, offering a distinct separation of shank and bowl, particularly in profile, aided by the neat design element of a heel spur. While many Danish interpretations offer an aesthetic of one flowing, singular smoking instrument, another often-used design cue is that of prominent cheeking, which provides an impression of separate elements, as seen in this wonderful rendition. The rim is gently rounded with a modest chamfer around an interior ring, avoiding the structural element of a flat rim that can disrupt the flowing lines of the bowl. The saddle stem presents a soft downturn that complements the curvature of the bowl, while the contrast stain ably illuminates both the birdseye and flame grain, which is especially prominent on the upper and lower shank. It's a very Danish, very soft-lined interpretation, and engineered for excellent air flow and an effortless smoke, at least if it's anything like every other S. Bang.- Chuck Stanion
