Savinelli: Otello Rusticated (315 KS) (6mm)
Product Number: 002-033-50285
Savinelli's interpretation of the Prince, the "315 KS" provides all the plump, in-hand comfort of the shape, with more emphasis placed on the heel than classic English versions. The heel extends forward for a broader base and lower center of gravity, while the moderately sized shank leads to a willowy tapered stem, and the vertically compressed bowl presents a lower profile in silhouette. It maintains a staunch profile, making for a bolder rendition compared to traditional Anglo-French interpretations.
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.- Chuck Stanion
