Turkish Estates: Unknown Meerschaum Horses (Unsmoked)
Product Number: 004-653-4373
You can never really tell what inspires carvers of meerschaum pipes to depict the scenes that they do on their work. I often wonder if carvers are driven by what they see in the rough block, have a vivid imagination, or draw from life experiences (perhaps it is a combination of all three). No matter what was the inspiration for this particular pipe, it is truly a remarkable piece of craftsmanship. It depicts two galloping side by side — perhaps racing each other in playful competition.- Jeffery Sitts
