Castello: Collection Occhio di Pernice Lovat (K)
Product Number: 002-386-3404
Castello's "Occhio di Pernice" stamp is reserved for pieces featuring some excellent, tightly-packed birdseye, and this Lovat certainly deserves that mark of honor. I personally love the classic Lovat and while it may initially appear to be an easy, straightforward shape, it's actually incredibly difficult to execute in a way that'll look natural and balanced. This particular example truly showcases the Italian workshop's approach to traditional forms, featuring a long, rounded shank terminating in an abbreviated saddle stem. It's a handsome, light weight, and well-balanced piece that looks stunning in one of Castello's smoky contrast stains.- Jeffery Sitts
