Turkish Estates: Unknown Meerschaum Smooth Billiard with Silver
Product Number: 004-653-0080
This is a meerschaum that has seen some miles. Fortunately, whoever made it in the first place, made it about as solid as a meerschaum can get, with a stout-walled bowl and a short shank, banded in sterling silver - thus preparing it well to survive the kind of rigors it has clearly seen. Both band and bowl display the scars of more than a few dings, but I have to say that if this old smoker has anything, it's character.
