A beautiful and unusual antique Meerschaum pipe.

This pipe has been very finely carved as an outstretched hand holding an acorn.

The pipe has some finer detailing such as an oak leaf that lightly curves around and a small acorn bud which has an inset cabochon which is unusual to find, made and carved from a very light yellow celluloid.

The pipe has a dark rich amber stem which does show some wear.

It comes with the original pipe case but this is very worn with losses to the leather covering, overall wear and weakness.

A beautiful 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 has a very dark patina, the pipe has been smoked and has charring present, two of the fingers on the reverse side have restoration which is visible to the untrained eye, this is an old restore.

Approx measurements: (out of case)
