Turkish Estates: Unknown Meerschaum Spot Carved Bent Billiard (with Case) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 004-653-5188
Crafted by an unknown carver, this bent Billiard is quite the faithful rendition of the classic shape, and it has been given a touch of cheeking at the transition, and a bit of a taper to its rim. A plump, forward canting bowl sits at the end of a lithe shank and stem combination, and the entire thing features a consistent undercurve that allows the eye to easily travel from button to rim. Dressed mostly smooth, there's a nice spot carving at the fore of the bowl in a sun-like pattern, providing some extra textural intrigue.-John McElheny
