Italian Estates: Radice Twin-Bore Underwood Billiard (Oil Cured) (2004)
Product Number: 004-006-9449
If the Americans are the forerunners of sandblasting, then the Italians surely take the crown for rustication: this Radice straight Billiard is expertly carved in a variation of the melting-wax rustication technique. In this particular example, the briar seems to fall off the bowl like roasted pork off the bone, with the rim and shank left as bare accents. The stain is divided up into a darker and lighter tones of earthy red-brown, which plays nicely against the silky, reflective, coffee-and-cream colored stem.
