Turkish Estates: Unknown Meerschaum Smooth Billiard with Amber Stem (with Case)
Product Number: 004-008-1730
Though we have no precise date or origin for this pipe, the real amber stem and "Garantirt echt Meerschaum" printed on the inside of its case suggests it was made and/or marketed in Germany, and at a point quite some distance in the past. We don't see a lot of these old amber-stemmed numbers, and most of the time when we do they are, unfortunately, no longer intact.
