Turkish Estates: Unknown Smooth Meerschaum Billiard Set with Silver (with Case) Tobacco Pipe

Product Number: 004-653-5186

A pair of pipes here from an unknown carver, this dynamic duo of meerschaums displays a look that is nothing short of classic, one being a Billiard and the other its bent sibling. Only one of these two is smoked, the straight Billiard, while the other remains unsmoked, though both display a thoroughly traditional shaping style. Said straight Billiard pairs a tall bowl to a relatively short shank whose junction has been adorned with a band of silver before being joined with the tapering black stem. This piece features a handsomely Danish character about it that sees the bowl take on an arcing taper from its low-set waist to the rim, softening things up nicely. The bent Billiard, on the other hand, is more transition-central, with straighter walls at the bowl, though still with a touch of taper, and a slightly less muscular shank that upturns sharply to meet its own band of silver at the junction, as well as a smartly curved black stem. Both of these pipes have been left smooth, with the straight Billiard beginning to show some patina, though with plenty left to acquire as it's smoked.
