Turkish Estates: IMP Meerschaum Smooth Billiard with Silver Rim and Band (with Case)
Product Number: 004-008-1748
There are some meerschaum smokers who insist on holding their pipes by the stem in order to allow a full "color" to develop on the bowl... and the previous owner of this silver-rimmed-and-banded straight Billiard clearly wasn't one of them. the borderline Lovat proportions probably had something to do with that, I'd guess. Still, it has gotten a fair head-start over all, and if you would like to even it out, at this point holding it by the long shank will probably do.
