Turkish Estates: Unknown Meerschaum Claw (with Case) Tobacco Pipe

Product Number: 004-653-5089

This large meerschaum depicts the age-old, popular motif of a "dragon claw clutching" something. In this rendition, the serpent's scaly talons are holding onto a basket, it seems. The stummel has already begun to patinate and will continue to do so as it's smoked over time. It's topped here by a dark amber stem, its base adorned with stylish expansion discs for further flourishing detail.
