Danish Estates: Kurt Balleby Smooth Bulldog (4) (Unsmoked)
Product Number: 004-001-18982
Kurt Balleby is quite fond of the Bulldog shape, but the Danish artisan doesn't produce as many straight variations as he does bent one, making this example a rarer sight. The bowl is of a more rounded (rather than tapered) style, as is typical from Balleby, and such shaping does well to contrast against the more rigid shaping of the diamond shank. Said shank has here been elongated in this piece for a sleek profile, and the grain is beautiful, dressed in a chestnut stain for classic appeal. This piece is unsmoked, but it should be noted that the stem was over buffed at some point so that it's no longer perfectly flush against the shank.-Truett Smith
