Savinelli: Otello Rusticated (207) (6mm)
Product Number: 002-033-34527
Savinelli's "207" Apple is one of their more traditionally inclined and noticeably English-inspired designs, defined by its broad, plump bowl and an arrow straight shank and stem arrangement. It's also one of the few straight Apple shapes offered by the Italian marque, the other primarily being their "202." Where the two versions differ is in their proportions: The "207" tends to be a touch shorter in length but features a larger bowl while the "202" is slightly longer and trimmer, displaying a smaller bowl up front.
Based on Shakespeare's Othello, the four-act opera Otello was written by Giuseppe Verdi to accompany an Arrigo Boito libretto and was first performed in 1887. It was the Aida composer's penultimate work and follows Shakespeare's tragic story of General Othello. Savinelli pays homage to the famous Italian opera in the Otello line, marked by two distinct finishes, a svelte nickel accent, and a stem-and-shank configuration that emulates a military mount. Found here in the rusticated version, this piece wears a dark, striated rustication for intriguing texture in hand.- Jeffery Sitts
