New!  French Estates: Butz-Choquin Viking (60)

Product Number: 004-003-1123

It's one level of difficulty to carve a figural from meerschaum, it's quite another to attempt it in a medium as tough and unforgiving as briar. While the expression on this Viking's face seems to suggest that he just found out his daughter had run off with a member of a garage band (thatched-hut band?), it is a decent effort, and there's some nice cross grain on the rim.
