Turkish Estates: Altay Meerschaum Scary Face (with Case) Tobacco Pipe

Product Number: 004-653-5259

More scientifically known as sepiolite, meerschaum is a clay-like mineral found primarily in Turkey, where meerschaum carving has flourished through the history of pipe making. The light, porous mineral is prized in pipe making for its workability and flavor-neutral smoking properties, making it immune to ghosting. This piece by Altay is offered in the form of a particularly porous skull.
