Zitat: "Here we find ourselves an interesting form of bent Dublin from Stanwell. The slender, shapely shank and stem give off a deceptively lengthy impression, while the bowl presents us with a decidedly different take on the classically conical Dublin form. This gives the piece, taken as a whole, a sense of graceful curving, forward-jutting voluptuousness in a surprisingly light and slender package. - Eric N. Squires"

With its delicately curving shank and stem, and fine, slender bowl, the "243" shape suggests a Sixten Ivarsson design. We aren't certain of its origins beyond it having been first available in the 60's and 70's, but if not designed by Ivarsson himself it was almost certainly a product of his influence - and a fine influence it was. - Eric N.
