Jacono: Rook Acorn with Silver (EE)
Product Number: 002-616-0691
Tonino Jacono's grading system uses chess terminology to denote its various tiers — with King and Queen being the highest, respectively, and Rook following close behind. To denote pieces of particular note, the Italian carver will stamp "E" or "EE," referencing particularly commendable grain within a certain grade. This Rook EE Acorn exemplifies this designation, with the vivid, natural stain highlighting flowing flame grain that aligns beautifully with the bowl's natural curvature. Shape-wise, the bowl flares at a forward cant into the rounded rim, exhibiting this insulating walls and comforting in hand feel. Accented with sterling silver, the shank gives way to an acrylic stem of smoky gray and black hues for a handsome contrast against the stummel's brighter hue.-Truett Smith
