Italian Estates: Ascorti New Dear Free-Line Bent Dublin

Product Number: 004-006-9378

The Ascorti New Dear carved rustication bear some similarity with other "melting wax" finishes I've come across; the Radice Underwood, the Ser Jacopo Rowlette, but I have never seen a New Dear with a carving that emphasized this level and amount of detail. Ascorti did well to employ it on this piece, because it is some of the baldest briar I've ever seen; however, here, it works perfectly, balancing the smooth void, and near virgin finish, "peeling" back the briar to reveal its far more interesting layers.
