Jacono: Bishop Acorn
Product Number: 002-616-0609
The Acorn isn't a shape we see too often from Tonino Jacono, and this particular rendition is a slight departure from previous ones we've received. In this past, Jacono Acorns have hewn closer to high-waisted Apples, this one being the first to display a protruding heel spur beneath the bulbous bowl. It makes a striking profile, the crisp lines of the spur contrasting against the rounded curves of the bowl and shank. It's all dressed in Tonino's Bishop finish — perhaps the carver's most curious, as it incorporates a smooth contrast stain, like his Rook line, but is accented with portions of the Knight rustication, in this case oriented around the rim to resemble natural plateau.-Truett Smith
