Savinelli: Marron Glace Smooth (114 KS) (6mm)
Product Number: 002-033-45985
Savinelli boasts a rather robust shape chart, not to mean that all of their shapes are robust, but the diversity of shapes is grand. The Italian marque has an especially wide array of straight Billiard designs, all differing in their size and proportions. The "114 KS" is one of only two saddle-stemmed varieties, joining the "110," and it sits right in the middle of Savinelli's size spectrum: It's a touch larger than the "104" and "106" but exhibits a trimmer style than, say, the "101," more similar to the "111 KS." Lovers of English classics will appreciate the traditional shaping and relative proportions but with a slightly larger bowl to ensure a comforting in hand feel and plenty of chamber space.
Marron glacé is a delectable confection consisting of specially selected chestnuts encased in sugar syrup and glazing that traces its origins back to southern France and northern Italy. The labor-intensive presentation, which results in the chestnuts shimmering as if encrusted in translucent ice, has elevated marron glacé above being merely a candy, but as a prestigious culinary art used in many desserts. Celebrated in the works of Marcel Proust and Saki, marrons glacés have been a treat associated with tantalizing decadence for centuries. In Savinelli's homage to the heralded confection, the Italian marque's Marron Glace series features the rich brown hues of its namesake, paired with an acrylic stem of marbled jade and onyx tones. It joins the likes of the Miele, Liquirizia, Caramella, and Vaniglia series, rounding out Savinelli's sweets-inspired lines.-Truett Smith
