German Estates: Rainer Barbi Smooth Bent Egg (BB) (1191) (1992-1997)
Product Number: 004-005-5112
Very tall and organically shaped, this Egg from Rainer Barbi presents cross-grain orientation with horizontal strands crossing the left and right flanks and wide swaths of speckled birdseye fore and aft. The transition is tightly knit to maintain the shaping of the bowl as it descends to the succinctly rounded heel with just the touch of a spur indicated beneath. The shank tapers as it reaches to the stem, which continues that taper in a long arc all the way to the crisp lip button. The stem logo has been buffed down, but the stamping "1191" is intact, indicating the manufacture date of this piece to be in 1991, and while there are some small scratches and a bit of rim darkening to consider, it's still in very good condition.- Chuck Stanion
