There's something quite organic about this piece. From the whirlpool-like ridging along the bowl, to the three-knuckle darkened bamboo shank, to a slightly bent vulcanite stem, it's a remarkably balanced, natural composition. Rather Japanese in style, the bowl's a perfect shape for a bit of folded flake or, of course, a pinch of traditional Japanese fine-shag tobacco. Either way, it's a lovely, yet exotic aesthetic - perfect to add to your collection.
