Italian Estates: Gabriele Smooth Bent Apple with Masur Birch (Nautilus)
Product Number: 004-006-25080
While Gabriele may have developed a stellar reputation with his playful Poker and Vulker shapes, it's these more full-bodied numbers I find ultimately the most inviting. This bent Apple is an excellent example. With its plump disposition, lively forward posture, and subtle, detailed line work, it's a supple and organic composition. It's finished in a very light stain, accentuating some lovely grain and allowing for a natural patina still to develop, and paired to a neat ring of masur birch at the shank end. Coupled with all that, the dome-based saddle stem is made of a darker shade of cumberland, lending an additional sense of warmth to the aesthetic.-Truett Smith
