Turkish Estates: Unknown Lattice Meerschaum Paneled Acorn with Feather (with Case) Tobacco Pipe

Product Number: 004-653-5513

Crafted from lightweight, flavor-neutral meerschaum, this Acorn from an unknown maker is a distinctive rendition of the shape. The bowl possesses the flared, softly inflated rim and gradual taper to the heel associated with the shape, but encompassed by crisp, paneled facets and wearing a striking carved finish. The facets lend plenty of firm lines across the bowl's surface for the fingers to explore, while the carved finish dresses the shank and rim in swirling circles and the bowl in teardrop-shaped recesses, save for one flank, which displays a detailed carving of a large feather. The lengthy shank flares lightly coming out of the low-slung transition, its dark brown color testifying to the handsome patination process that occurs with meerschaum pipes after repeated use. A saddle stem of cream and amber-hued acrylic tops off the design and makes a gentle downturn for a comfortable smoking posture.
