A very beautiful antique late 19th century meerschaum smoking pipe.

Very finely carved as a pair of owls resting on a branch, the larger owl to the top has his wings slightly outstretched and appears to be shielding the smaller owl.

They both have inset brown glass eyes.

There is great attention to detail on this one.

The stem has been replaced by a later black vulcanite stem.

It comes all packed safely in its original leather bound and velvet lined case.

No marks, possibly a German make late 19th century.

Good used condition overall, stem is a later replacement, stem has wear, one ear on one owl is broken, case shows wear, small crack in the meerschaum on the underside, has been smoked, charring evident.

Approx measurements: (out of case) 5" total length
1.75" total height
