Turkish Estates: Unknown Meerschaum Lion
Product Number: 004-653-4128
The Cowardly Lion wasn't always known by his pejorative moniker; back when he sold insurance, he just went by Steve. One fateful evening, as he was walking to the bus stop, he made his way past a large, menacing house. Deciding to make one last stop, he prepared his pitch as he approached house's imposing doorstep. Reaching his paw up to the brass knocker, the door rapidly swung open, revealing what appeared to be the towering, hooded specter of Death himself. As Steve ran shrieking from the house, he was unable to notice the laughing teenagers piled on each other's shoulders, brandishing the light of a phone camera. Unfortunately, the video went viral shortly thereafter, and the name stuck. Only some rim darkening here, along with a tooth mark to the stem; otherwise condition is good.- Daniel Bumgardner
