Antique Meerschaum Pipe in Original Case
larger imageMove mouse over the image to magnify
An absolutely stunning Pipe with incredible detail, carved from a Block of Meerschaum and with decades of use giving it the most extraordinary patina.  There is a Reddish glow around the Hat area and shades of Ambers and browns through the face with appropriate highlights around his facial features.  Even under the Chin it appears to show grey hairs coming through the beard where the least colour effected part of the carving is detailed. This Nubian Head has such a compelling expression that it could only have been created by the most skilled craftsman. There is some damage to the case and the mouth piece needs replacing.  Circa 1870. 

10cm long.
