Turkish Estates: Unknown Meerschaum Hand with Basket (with Case)
Product Number: 004-008-2166
The flip-side of the old dragon-claw-with-egg theme, this meerschaum offers up a slender, smooth, very clearly feminine hand holding a basket. Quite a small basket, as baskets go (assuming the lady's not some manner of giantess), but for a pipe bowl it's plenty large, with loads of depth.
