Misc. Estates: Unknown Meerschaum Rusticated Apple
Product Number: 004-008-1654
No, we didn't mislabel this one - it is indeed meerschaum, albeit meerschaum that has been rusticated and finished so as to be indistinguishable from briar at a glance. I can't say I've ever seen one before, but it does seem like reasonable concept, providing the look of a dark-finished briar (which some might prefer), as well as the lighter weight and unique smoking qualities of meerschaum.
