Italian Estates: Ser Jacopo Sandblasted Bent Bulldog with Horn (S2) (Maxima Maxima)

Product Number: 004-006-9492

The Bulldog is shape that doesn't seem like it would lend well to the Persaro schools loose and liberal approach to shaping; it is, after all, a very muscular, angular form, whereas the Persaro can't help but shape briar as though it had the consistency of warm putty. For reasons beyond our understanding and good design sense, it just works, and does so quite well - and this lovely piece is an excellent example of that. The line from the bottom back of the stem is carried uninterrupted all the way under the bowl to the double beading that runs around the bowl a quarter of its height from the rim. That line is echoed by the distinct way the bowl is differentiated from the shank on the top of the diamond shaped shank. It's all clean, crisp and, superficially at least, quite classical, but these little stylistic elements ultimately make all the difference.
