Italian Estates: Il Ceppo Sandblasted Bent Apple (1)
Product Number: 004-006-22659
This Il Ceppo piece is one such shape that tows the line exactly between two different designs. In this case, those two shapes are the bent Apple and the Hawkbill. The transition is where the ambiguity becomes most apparent. The consistently down-turned shank and stem flow just like a Hawkbill's and meet the bowl similarly. However, the top of the transition is a touch more gentle and the lower portion a bit more stretched, lending the bowl a more bent Apple-like posture. Either way, fans of both shapes are sure to love this piece, offering up plenty of chamber, a plump feel in hand, and a lovely texture thanks to the ring grain-adorned sandblast.
