Tax included. Shipping calculated at checkout.
A very fine antique late Victorian era meerschaum pipe.

It is very much about the carving on this one, intricately and finely decorated, this is a fine example of master carvings.

The attention to detail is exemplary, it depicts a lady of fashion in period dress holding a posy in one hand and twirling her hair with the other.

The top of the hat forms the bowl and this meerschaum is unsmoked which is a nice aspect for an older piece.

It has a rich orange stem with some nibbles, nicks, slightly loose on the tenon so very possibly a replacement.

It does not come cased.

Very good used condition overall, some wear to the mouthpiece and stem, most likely replacement stem.

Approx measurements: (out of case)
5" total length
2.5" total height at the bowl
