Former: Sandblasted Billiard with Horn Stem
Product Number: 002-017-0275
A seriously classic take on the most classic of shapes, this Billiard from Hans "Former" Nielsen is a bit more slender and svelte of line than what we're used to seeing from the carver, and I'm not complaining. Treated with a lighter-depth, yet still stimulating sandblasted finish, accentuating a handsome cross-cut grain pattern, and lent a saddle-stem of genuine, creamy horn, it's an elegant piece, but not without a rustic disposition. With its gently-lifting heel, and gradual, easy sense of taper to the bowl, the shape's Danish charm is quite pronounced indeed.
