A beautiful scarce antique Meerschaum pipe.
It is expertly carved as chicks hatching from an egg, the egg held in a hand.
It is a small sized pipe with a fluted top bowl, could possibly be used as a cheroot also.
The little chicks have inset black glass eyes.
The pipe has a short amber stem which does show some wear.
It does not come with a case.
A beautiful little pipe to add to the collection with a nice and well carved subject matter.
No marks, English make late 19th century.
Good used condition overall, stem / bit does have some wear including scratches to the top and nibbles, the meerschaum is nice and bright, there is a small crack to the meerschaum on the reverse side of the pipe near the egg, shown on photos.
