German Estates: Rainer Barbi Sandblasted Apple (BB) (2006)

Product Number: 004-005-4626

This straight apple with an almost Liverpool-like shank is refined and elegantly simple — and by the late German master's standards, a fairly straightforward, but beautifully executed traditional shape. A smooth cross-grained rim and breathtaking blasted grain on the fore and aft of the bowl make for a stunning presentation with no shortage of texture, while the smooth briar inlay on the bit is a delightful finishing touch. Condition is quite good as well, with just some minor rim darkening of note.
