American Estates: Andrew Marks Smooth Shield (1987)
Product Number: 004-009-14709
Marrying the light, lithe aesthetic of a trim Zulu or old French Dublin with the pinched, lenticular arrangement of the more eccentric Shield design, this piece from Andrew Marks cuts a seriously striking silhouette, to say the least. Crafted back in 1987, this design also features an impressive array of flame grain riding all flanks underneath the stummel's warm auburn stain. The band is original to this piece and not an aftermarket addition, further enhancing this impressive composition.- Andrew Wike
