Tax included. Shipping calculated at checkout.
An incredibly beautiful and detailed antique Victorian era Meerschaum pipe bowl.

This is a real master carving.

The body of the pipe is carved as a running deer with a running dog beside it, presumably on a hunt.

There is a dog on either side but sadly one dog is missing his head, the rest of the carving however is in very good condition.

It has a flared and gadrooned bowl rim with a hexagonal metal collar.

The pipe has a foot to stabilise to the lower half and this has been carved as the head of a dog.

To each end there are elaborately carved and moulded swirls.

It is a nice size and very nicely carved with lots of realistic detailing, a lovely addition to the collection.

Comes with the original fitted case.

English make c1880's.

Good used condition overall, signs of use, some scratches and nibbles to the mouthpiece, it has been smoked and charring is evident, one dog is missing a head.

Approx measurements :
3.5" in length
2.25" height.
