American Estates: Ernie Markle Sandblasted Stubby Billiard with Silver
Product Number: 004-009-12104
Though quite minimalist, designs like this Stubby Billiard perhaps best demonstrate Ernie Markle's unique, muscular shaping style. The plump, softly rounded bowl showcases his Danish neo-classical influences, broadening the waistline and positioning it quite low along the vertical axis, while the abbreviated, stout shank and comparatively trim saddle bit, in turn, exemplify his American industrial approach. The result is a charmingly stout little nosewarmer with a firm presence in hand and a clean, neat silhouette in profile. Ernie chose a light Danish-style sandblast for this particular piece, maintaining the form's clean, minimalist lines and has accented it with a gleaming wedding band of sterling silver. Other than some slight darkening along the inner rim, this one's in excellent condition.- Andrew Wike
