Turkish Estates: Unknown Meerschaum Claw (with Case)
Product Number: 004-653-3691
One could, I believe, build an entire collection of claw-and-egg meerschaums just going by the variations of what type of claw is holding the bowl: bird of prey, dragon, griffon, koala bear, maybe the occasional lady's hand, and so forth. Given the prominent scales on this one, and tuft of feathers at its wrist, I'm guessing this one would be a griffon's. Some light dings and rim darkening to this one, otherwise it's in quite good condition.
