Esterd Carved Billiard with Silver Band and Ivory Stem (with Box)

Product Number: 004-007-0461

This unusual find is a combination of the work of two different Japanese firms. Esterd is a sub-branch of the famed Tsuge pipe company, which provided the hand-carved Billiard bowl and its silver band. The ivory stem, however, comes from Hakusui Ivory Company; best known for producing fine ivory netsukes and jewelry, they appear to have begun importing into the USA during the latter half of the '50s, and quite a bit of their work can still be found amongst internet vendors of vintage goods. Our best guess on a date for this pipe would be sometime during the 1960s.
