Italian Estates: Castello 'Castello' Apple (KK) (2015)
Product Number: 004-006-29414
A compact take on Castello's "23" Apple design, this piece boasts an almost Brucianaso-worthy size but without the characteristic muscularity of the Italian workshop's iconic "10" and "11" Brucianaso shapes. Rather, the shank-and-stem combination taper consistently to the button, keeping the visual weight firmly at the bowl. Said bowl is a touch squater and plumper than other renditions we've seen, more like a Tomato, making this particular offering all the more suited to carrying on-the-go, while still offering plenty of substance in hand. It's dressed here in a honey-blonde stain that highlights a lively array of grain.-Truett Smith
