Misc. Estates: Andreas Bauer Meerschaum Smooth Billiard with Amberoid Stem (with Case) Tobacco Pipe

Product Number: 004-008-3119

Bauers are known for being particularly high quality meerschaums. They are also known for having a curious stem material, "amberoid". It looks like very nice acrylic, but it takes a static charge like natural amber. That latter aspect is easily explained, as amber itself was one of the main ingredients used to create amberoid. This Billiard is one of only three Bauers I've ever personally seen, but three has been enough to notice something else about the stems: despite their material being amber-based, they don't seem to suffer from the usual wear of pure amber, such as crackling and cracking.
