Ashton: Claret Bulldog (X)
Product Number: 002-006-2677
I'm rather fond of this Ashton Bulldog shape; it's lean and undeniably tight-knit, lightweight, and extremely easy in hand. Coupled with that, it hearkens back to 1930s and 1940s era English factory renditions of the form, those tending toward a rigid, neat-lined sense of geometry and structure but still exuding a sense of elegance and effortless poise. The diminutive bowl is squat, broad, and utilizes a crisp ridgeline around its midsection, just underneath the beveled rim, and sharply tapers to the firm heel. The aforementioned ridgeline also does an excellent job of echoing the firm lines of the diamond shank. It's dressed here in the gorgeous, ruby-red stain of the Claret finished, paired to a traditional jet-black mouthpiece that accentuates its classic appeal.- Jeffery Sitts
