Turkish Estates: SMS/A. Govem Meerschaum Claw (with Case)
Product Number: 004-653-3805
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. Coloring has already begun on this one, but condition is otherwise good.- Rachel DuBose
