Italian Estates: Castello Old Antiquari Apple (27) (G)

Product Number: 004-006-25355

This plump Apple from Castello is stamped "Old Antiquari," but the finish is clearly rusticated, so I have no explanation. Featuring a near-fully rounded bowl set to a streamlined, strongly tapered shank and stem design, this Castello Apple offers a plump, palm-filling feel in hand, and plenty of chamber within. While smooth of form, the deep, craggy rustication covering the briar actually lends the piece a rugged, pastoral charm — both in hand and in profile. The darker stain near the top of the bowl was done at the factory, per the classic Italian "fumed" tradition.
