Nikolay Kozyrev: Sandblasted Billiard with Silver
Product Number: 002-773-0021
The classic, tapered stem straight Billiard isn't a design we've seen too often from Nikolay Kozyrev. Typically, the Russian carver likes to accent his straight Billiards with bamboo or horn and fit them with a saddle stem. Not so here, though, and the results are marvelous: a traditional, arrow straight design that flows smoothly and uninterrupted throughout. A slight but gradual taper from heel to rim balances well with the tapering stem as well as lends the piece the softness so characteristic of the Danish school. Nikolay's penchant for Danish classics is even more apparent in the finish, as the piece wears a shallow but gorgeously apparent contrast blast and polished rim up top. Stained a dark, almost black, brown hue, the broad silver accent is allowed to really shine, giving a slight nod to many an English rendition.-Truett Smith
