Radice: Rubino Rhodesian with Silver
Product Number: 002-030-2790
A gorgeous Rhodesian shape, rendered in true Italian style, this Rubino from Gigi and sons features a big, softly rounded bowl, set to a more lively and gestural stretch of shank and stem. The dark, understated palette really suits the shape's playful lines as well, while highlighting the block's grain pattern with a subtle warmth. What's really interesting about this piece, however, is the sterling silver accent. Gigi and sons have used this style of rope-patterned silver band before, but typically it's found on the end of the shank; here they've instead used it to replace the traditional beadlines of the Rhodesian. And to great effect, too, I might add.
