Gabriele: Smooth Rhodesian with Boxwood (Whale)
Product Number: 002-533-0080
Though the Rhodesian doesn't sport the same diamond shank as its Bulldog brethren, here Gabriele dal Fiume has offered a touch of structural design to the shape by pairing its plump bowl to a broad oval shank, the latter with a curling gesture that's quite handsome in profile. The bowl itself forgoes the traditional bead lines, as well, instead using a crisp ridge to mark the transition from the bowl to the beveled rim. The finish is as attractive as one would hope, pairing a warm contrast stain for the stummel with a combination of pale boxwood for accent, and a cumberland mouthpiece to offer a deeper, darker warm tone. Excellent piece.- Rachel DuBose
