Italian Estates: Castello 'Castello' Bulldog (KK)

Product Number: 004-006-25160

While Castello's bent Bulldogs often feature a squat, low-set bowl, the Italian workshop's straight renditions are more commonly of the tall, stoic variety, like the one seen here. In this substantial, straight rendition, we see a tall, poised bowl rising up from the hearty, diamond shank, resulting in a firm, pronounced heel underneath. It's perfect for those interested in shape chart standards, but like the robust proportions and unabashed presentation of the Italian school. The shape's signature beadlines wrap around the bowl's midsection underneath the strongly tapered rim, while the chamber inside is remarkably capacious. For a whimsical accenting touch, the Italian workshop has placed a a subtle dimple along each side of the bowl at beadline level, perfectly shaped for wrapped fingers.
